About the calculator
  • The results of the calculator are preliminary.
  • The calculator is suitable for parents who are civil servants or are employed under employment contracts.
  • In step 2, you should record the average monthly salary by taking your average income for 12 months “on paper”, ending in the first month before child care leave begins. For example, you were entitled to the benefit in February 2021 and the benefit is calculated on the basis of the income received between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2020.
  • In step 3, you can record the average additional monthly income “on paper” for the first year of your leave, if you plan to work through it. The income will then be deducted from the benefit awarded.

The contribution floor does not apply if you have worked for more than one employer, received an old-age or incapacity pension, were under 24 years of age, have a fixed level of working capacity of 0-55 per cent, received maternity, paternity or childcare benefits (SSI Law, a. 10 p. 7)
