Next Friday, May 31 opens the electronic platform A21 – Child Benefit, informs the Ministry of Social Cohesion and Family and the supervised Organization of Benefits and Social Solidarity (OPEKA).

As noted, the beneficiaries of the Child Allowance can submit their application on the IDIKA platform, or through the website, using their personal access codes to Taxisnet.

The entitled amount will be calculated on the basis of the dependent children to be declared in the A21 application of the year 2024 and the total family income that the beneficiaries had in the tax year 2022.

After submitting the current year’s Income Tax Return, the income of the tax year 2023 will be taken into account for the calculation of the eligible amount.

It is pointed out that among the conditions that will be checked for the granting of the child benefit are: the attendance of the dependent children in compulsory education – from pre-kindergarten to high school as well as the adequacy of attendance.

In the A21 application, the following must be entered in the relevant fields:

– the details of the School Unit,

– the class and the Registration Number of the child attending compulsory education.

If all of the student’s information is cross-referenced, the application can proceed normally. If they do not cross, a relevant marking appears and the applicant is asked to attach the necessary supporting documents to the electronic application A21.

In order to complete the application, it must be finally submitted and approved. A cached application is considered unsubmitted and will not be considered.
