Baby Paperwork 101 Workshop

Content:

This two-hour workshop is aimed at parents-to-be, who perhaps don’t speak
great German or just don’t really understand the piles of paperwork that the German system seems to throw at them once they find out they’re pregnant!

We will go through the formalities that need to be taken care of during pregnancy
and after the birth of your baby, what you’re entitled to and how to claim your
entitlements. We will discuss the following topics:

– Parental leave (Elternzeit)
– Parental leave benefits (Elterngeld)
– Child benefits (Kindergeld)
