Facts About Parental Benefits in Germany

If you plan to cancel parental benefits from Gernany you should not miss our detailed blog post on this topic: Parental benefits in Germany

What is Elterngeld?

Parental benefit supports parents after the birth of a child when they work less or stop entirely to care for their child. This parental allowance is available for all mothers and fathers. While receiving parental benefits, you can stay at home or work up to 32 hours per week. You do not have to interrupt your studies or training to receive parental benefits, and you can apply for it either alone or together with the other parent.

Parental benefit is available in three variants:

  • Basiselterngeld
  • ElterngeldPlus
  • Partnerschaftsbonus
How to cancel your parental benefit?

It is very straightforward to cancel your parental benefits. In most cases, you can call the family benefits office in charge and tell them that the payments must stop, and you’ll need to provide your case number and proof of identity. You can also request payments to end via mail. Remember to include proof of identity, your most recent parental benefit notice, and your case number.
Some offices might also request your deregistration confirmation. If you would like assistance because you don’t speak German or don’t have the time to do it yourself, you can book SympatMe’s convenient parental benefit cancellation service, and we’ll take care of it for you!

The parental benefit and residence abroad?

As a parent, you are only entitled to parental benefits as long as you live in Germany. If you leave the country to live elsewhere, you are no longer eligible for this subsidy. You are obliged to contact the parental benefit office and cancel the payments.
The only exception to this rule applies to state-employed officials and missionaries temporarily working abroad.
