The Government is proposing a new Bill that families with children who are infected by the Coronavirus abroad should not lose child allowance and cash support.

Child benefit and cash benefit usually lapse if a child stays abroad for more than three months.

“We believe that it is not reasonable for families to lose support if they have to stay abroad longer than they had intended because of the pandemic,” said Minister of Children and Family Kjell Ingolf Ropstad (KrF).

If the family of children has planned a stay abroad for more than three months, they are not entitled to support as a result of the temporary exemption rules from the Child Benefit and Cash Support Act.
