Financial assistance in Poland under the RODZINA 500+ program. How to receive 500 PLN every month?

If you have moved to Poland together with your children, you will certainly face considerable expenses every month. However, the state offers you the opportunity to receive significant financial assistance.

Read in this article about who can receive 500 PLN each month and under what conditions. We will provide detailed instructions on how to become a participant of the «RODZINA 500+» program. Enjoy reading the article!


How does the «RODZINA 500+» program work in Poland?

It is clear from the program's title «RODZINA 500+» that its essence is to provide financial assistance to families with children by giving them monthly payments of 500 PLN. These funds are given once a month and are calculated for each child in the family. For example, if you have two children, you will receive 1000 PLN, if you have three children, you will receive 1500 PLN, and so on. The financial assistance is credited exclusively to a bank card, so it is necessary to open an account in a Polish bank (see below for more details).

The creation of the «RODZINA 500+» program is due to a serious demographic problem in Poland - the declining birth rate. The government of the country decided to take this issue under control by providing financial support to families with children. You can read more about the «RODZINA 500+» program on the official website.


Who can apply for financial assistance under the «RODZINA 500+» program?

This program is intended for Polish citizens and also for foreigners (under certain conditions). Until 2019, only families with a low income could receive 500 PLN. However, today this condition has been removed and almost everyone can receive the payment.

Foreigners can receive assistance under the following conditions:

  • You are legally resident in Poland

  • You have the right to employment

In simple words: if you have a permanent residence card, temporary residence card and other documents that stipulate the right to employment, you will be able to receive assistance. And if your residence document does not stipulate the right to employment, you will not be able to receive assistance. Also, those who come for seasonal work will not be able to receive 500 PLN per month per child.
