Growth Package

Employer

A new child benefit system has been in effect since 1 January 2019. As a result, parents can now choose which child benefit fund they wish to join. This choice was previously made by employers, and the affiliation was automatically arranged through their payroll provider.  

Is one of your employees pregnant? Would you like to assist her in applying for the starting amount or maternity allowance? Or would you like to submit a Growth Package or Child Benefit application on behalf of your employee? No problem! You can find the necessary application documents and a link to our handy online application tool below. 

As an employer, you are likely to receive numerous questions about the new Growth Package. Can we help you in any way?
