The Slovak Parliament approved an amendment to the law on financial contributions to compensate for severe disabilities. The protective limit of income for a person with a severe disability receiving care allowance will rise from the current 1.7 times the subsistence level for an adult person to double the subsistence level. The care allowance will also rise in case of a working-age parent who takes care of his/her seriously disabled child from the current 49.8 euros per month to 100 euros. The rate per hour for personal assistance will increase from the originally proposed 2.82 euros to 3.82 euros.
