Payment bonus for new child...

I thought I read somewhere, no idea where that Switzerland was offering some kind of baby bonus one-time payment for new births.. This was in addition to the normal monthly child allowance we receive.. Any ideas?

I've never heard of such a thing, I think it must be certain companies that do this, but not the government.

Re: Payment bonus for new child...

Mais oauis! allocations familliales ( family allowances) : allocation pour naissance ou adoption (allocation for birth or adoption)

For Canton Valais, 2000 CHF (read notice sur les allocations familliales) More info, ask in the cantonal caisse de compensation.https://www.vs.ch/web/avs/allocations-familliales-af-

Also, as st2lemans mentioned, some employers have some budget too.

Re: Payment bonus for new child...

Can I get a bonus for adopting a cat? A monthly stipend would be nice, too.

They do. To social welfare recipients. Erstausstattung (initial equipment).


You'll make more money selling the baby.

Re: Payment bonus for new child...

It’s standard in Vaud. It’s called allocation de naissance. It’s similar to the monthly stipends we get. About 1000.-, possibly 1500.-, if I remember correctly. And it’s for everyone, no need to ge5 social welfare.

Most Swiss cantons pay this, the amount varies depending on the canton.
It’s paid by the same authority who pay the family allowance.

9/26 is hardly MOST.

But as OP is in VS, he is in luck:

Such a change of mind after claiming that communist debauchery did not exist at all

Well, it's just another display of differences among cantons. Curiously, two CH founding cantons are on the list.

Thanks for that good link. Ah, looking at that list of cantons, it seems to be - almost - a Röstigraben thing. Like you, I hadn't heard of it before, either.
