Eligible parents or legal custodians can apply and receive the benefit. However, if the recipient is a public worker, he or she must declare childbirth benefit received due to his or her individual or collective agreement with the public entity. In the event where this benefit is higher or equal to the common childbirth benefit, the applicant will not receive the latter. In the event where the received benefit is less than the common childbirth, only the difference will be paid.
No benefit is paid in case of adoption; however adopted children are included in the number/rank of children for whom benefit is taken out.
