According to the new regulations, the state allowance will be granted to children up to the age of 18, inclusive, without being conditioned by the school attendance. in the situation in which the young people follow the courses of the secondary or vocational education, the state allowance will be granted until their completion.

Young people from high school or vocational education who repeat the school year do not benefit from the state allowance, except for those who repeat the school year for health reasons. Also, the state allowance is not paid to the children who are in care or social assistance institutions or in educational institutions that ensure the complete maintenance by the state.
