“Garantia para a Infância” support paid out by the end of March


The complement "Garantia para a Infância", referring to 2022, will be paid by the Finances until the end of March. This support is attributed to children and young people from 3 to 17 years of age, whose families are in a situation of extreme poverty.

This support, which is a complement to the family allowance, is paid automatically by the Tax and Customs Authority (AT), to the bank account registered on the Finance portal.

The value of the complement depends on the family allowance and the family's personal income tax (IRS). The calculation is based on reference values, which vary according to the age of the child or young person:

  • Up to the age of 6 - the reference value is 600 euros
  • From the age of 6 onwards, the reference value is 492 euros.

The "Garantia para a Infância" is part of a set of measures which also includes the increase in the value of the family allowance and the inclusion of a benefit which complements the allowance.
