Understanding the process
In accordance with Articles 35 to 38 and 40 of the Sovereign Ordinance No. 7.155 of 10 October 2018 on the granting of dependency allowances to civil servant, other Government or Commune staff:
The holiday allowance is allocated to households whose head is a civil servant, or other Government or Commune staff, if the household income does not exceed the threshold defined by Ministerial Decree.
The recipient is the person to whom the family benefits are paid.
If the child lives alternately in the home of each parent, half of the holiday allowance is paid to each parent, unless a court order or written agreement between the parents designates the parent to whom the allowance is to be paid in full.
In accordance with Article 40 of the Sovereign Ordinance no. 7.155 of 10 October 2018, noted above, and the Ministerial Decree establishing the household income threshold for the payment of the holiday allowance and special allowance for the start of the school year to civil servant, other Government or Commune staff.
The resources taken into account for the calculation of the above-mentioned ceiling are comprised of:
- Total income made from gainful employment, for the year preceding the current year, including retirement pensions of the head of the household and the spouse
- Maintenance allowances and, if necessary, contributions to the expenses associated with the upkeep of common children which are either collected or deducted from the income of the head of the household or the spouse, for the year preceding the current year, are also taken into account
Family benefits, housing allowances and social welfare are not, however, included in the calculation of resources.
