The Corona pandemic has restricted the lives of children and adolescents. In order to alleviate the consequences somewhat, the Bundestag has passed a children’s recreation bonus. Families with very low incomes receive a one-time payment of 100 euros per child. The money is to be paid out in August. The 100 euros can be used for holiday, sports and leisure activities. This is what the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs writes in a statement. Families who receive, for example, child benefit, housing benefit, basic income support or support under the Asylum Seekers’ Benefits Act in August 2021 are entitled to the bonus. The bonus is generally paid out automatically, i.e., without an application, by the Family Fund of the Federal Employment Agency. Families who only receive housing benefit and no child supplement and families who receive social assistance must apply for the bonus informally at the family benefits office.
