For this reason, in Poland there are holidays and maternity allowance, which provides new mothers (and sometimes fathers) time to rest after birth and be present during the child’s first stages of life. To apply for a benefit, you need a document providing the expected time of birth a child, your child’s birth certificate or a declaration of the birth mother’s first or subsequent child. In the case of payment of benefits by the Social Security, you also need a certificate from your employer showing that you are on maternity leave and the length of that period.

Maternity allowance is paid in an amount equal to 100% of salary or income. The duration of benefits is 16 weeks after the birth of their first child, 18 weeks after the birth of the second child, and the next, or even 26 weeks after giving birth to more than one child in a single delivery. Time allowance covers the duration of maternity leave. Allowance should be made ​​to insured persons who have born child or take up to one year care of a child in the foster care or as a result of a court decision on adoption of a child.
