Berlin (dpa) - Parents of premature babies should receive more parental allowance in the future. In addition, more part-time work should be possible while receiving parental benefit and couples with an annual income of more than 300,000 euros should no longer be entitled to parental benefit in the future. This emerges from a draft by the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs for a parental benefit reform, which is available to the dpa. This was put into coordination with the other ministries last week. It is planned that the new regulations will come into force in the coming year.
