English classes and workshops
- Freitag 18:00 - 20:30
Kosten: Fee: 35 Euro for an individual and 50 Euro per couple
This two-hour workshop is aimed at parents-to-be, who perhaps don’t speak
great German or just don’t really understand the piles of paperwork that the
German system seems to throw at them once they find out they’re pregnant!
We will go through the formalities that need to be taken care of during pregnancy
and after the birth of your baby, what you’re entitled to and how to claim your
entitlements. We will discuss the following topics:
- Maternity leave allowance (Mutterschaftsgeld and Mutterschutz)
- Father declaration and custody rights agreement (Vaterschaftsanerkennung and Sorgerechtserklärung)
- Parental leave (Elternzeit)
- Parental leave benefits (Elterngeld)
- Child benefits (Kindergeld)
- Birth certificate (Geburtsurkunde)
- Health insurance (Krankenversicherung)
- Passport (Reisepass)
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
