There are only three weeks until the method of payment of the childcare allowance will change. From January 1, 2007 new rules will enter into force. From next year, the mothers who will prove that by the date of birth they have achieved, 12 months, professional income subject to income tax will receive compensation 6 million old lei.
In addition, they will also benefit from the state allowance for the child, which will increase from 240,000 lei, as it is now, to 2 million lei. Under these conditions, the new mothers will receive 8 million lei (6 million allowance and 2 million allowance). But they will lose the 240,000 lei, which were granted as a state allowance.
The changes will also be in terms of the incentive given to mothers who interrupt their child-raising leave and return to work earlier than the two-year-old.

They will no longer receive, besides the basic salary, 3 million lei as before, but only one million lei. "The people who want to start the service earlier will receive, besides the salary, the supplement of one million lei, but also the allocation of 2 million lei. And in this case, 240,000 lei will be lost. In order to benefit from the supplement, the mothers need of a request and a certificate from which they can return that they returned to work. The documents are submitted to the county departments of the work they belong to, "said Mihai Rapi, executive director of the Department of Work, Social Solidarity and Family Bucharest.
According to him, the winners will have mothers who do not meet the conditions in order to receive the allowance. "They will receive the state allowance, which will no longer be 240,000 lei, but 2 million lei," said director Rapi.
