The birth benefit for residents of Tallinn (in the case of the birth of one child) in the amount of 320 euros is paid in two instalments, based on a one-off application:

  • 50% following the submission of the application
  • 50% after the child turns 1, provided that the child and their parent(s) have been residents of Tallinn according to the population register since the birth of the child, i.e. all the time until the child turns 1

The twin birth benefit (in the case of the birth of twins) in the amount of 1000 euros is paid in one go.

The multiple birth benefit (in the case of the birth of three or more children) in the amount of 6392 euros is paid in one go.

In order to obtain the birth benefit for residents of Tallinn, the child must meet the following requirements:

  • their registered place of residence since their birth has continually been Tallinn
  • according to the population register, the place of residence of at least one parent was continually Tallinn for one year prior to the birth of the child, and the place of residence of the other parent was Tallinn before the child’s birth. Note: In the case of the other parent, the time of registration is not important: it is sufficient if it was done before the child’s birth
  • according to the population register, the place of residence of the child’s single parent was continually Tallinn for one year prior to the child’s birth.

An adoptive parent and the child’s guardian are also entitled to the benefit. The application must be submitted within six months of the court order for guardianship or adoption entering into force, provided that the child is no more than 18 months old at the time of it entering into force. An adoptive parent or guardian does not have to be a resident of Tallinn.
