Applying for maternity benefit

Description

During the protection periods before and after childbirth as well as for the day of delivery, you can receive maternity benefit.

If you are a member of the statutory health insurance, apply for maternity benefit from your health insurance company.

If you are privately insured or family insured and are in an employment relationship at the beginning of the protection period (this also includes a minor employment relationship/mini-job), submit the application to the Federal Insurance Office and receive a one-time maximum of EUR 210.00.

Self-employed women who are not insured with a statutory health insurance company with entitlement to sickness benefit, but who have private health insurance, do not receive maternity benefit.

Self-employed women who are insured with a statutory health insurance fund entitled to daily sickness benefit receive maternity benefit in the amount of the sickness benefit.
