Application for paternity allowance

The request by your employer can be done only after having taken the 14-day-long paternity leave or the latest 6 months after your child's birth. The compensation office in charge is the one of the employer by whom you have taken the last day of your paternity leave.

If you are independent you can make the request directly to your compensation office. If you are both employee and independent, make the request to the compensation office to which you pay contributions for your independent occupation.
