moneyCaregiver’s allowance for self-employed II (October call closed)



The October 2020 call has been closed.

We will publish a call for applications for November soon, after which the reception of applications will begin.

It is expected that the November call will allow combining the  Caregiver’s allowance for self-employed with the Compensation bonus. Thus, self-employed persons will not have to choose which support is more beneficial for them, so overall they will be able to apply for higher support.

The October call:

Taking care of a family member for CZK 400 / day for the period from November 10th until November 31st, 2020.

The money is intended only for the self-employed with self-employment as their main activity, therefore:

The care-giver’s allowance for the self-employed cannot be combined with the Compensation Bonus, which will be paid by the Ministry of Finance.
