Vesturbyggð pays so-called parental allowances, that depend on the child and parents/guardians having legal domicile and residence in Vesturbyggð.
Skrifað: 28. ágúst 2023
At the end of maternity/paternity leave, or when the child has reached the age of 12 months for cohabiting parents or 7 1/2 months for a single parent, the right to parental allowances is acquired and an application for preschool attendance is required. When a child enters preschool, these payments cease.
Please note that the allowance must be applied for with a special application form and the payments are paid retroactively.
