The Bavarian family money is a choice gift is, without a doubt. But with the new act, it is, at least in the case of those who really need it: Hartz-IV-receiver should be able to benefit from the family money, it is not counted against the basic security. Thus, it is a staircase wit of the election campaign, but a meaningful thing. And the Prime Minister, Markus Söder fulfilled his promise to do more for the families.
What has been spotted, as the family was denied the money, of all things, Hartz-IV recipients. The state government was not even able to write a law conforming to the law. A benefit for high-earners, they've come up with. And against Berlin, Bayern could not prevail. Vice versa had to listen to the SPD that the social Democrats, did not want to provide in the Person of Federal Minister for social Affairs, Hubertus Heil, the Poorest of the grant. An embarrassing Situation that threatened to escalate to court. The state government had lost a case to the family money, would be to degenerate the idea of the final pun.
of Course, the question remains whether parents with good incomes really need a state subsidy. After all, the family money costs almost 800 million euros in the year, and even the Bavarian budget is not inexhaustible. Especially since the Minister of Finance has yet to pay for more expensive ideas of the new coalition. An income limit for Eligible family money would be quite understandable. Conversely, it is not to explain why Hartz-IV-recipients of the money should be withheld. Especially not because of legal niceties. 250 Euro per month and child, are a sum, which can improve the life of a single parent with two small children is crucial. 424 Euro after the Hartz IV rule set to 245 euros per small child. Even if there are subsidies: Who gets to the end of the month only difficult, need to be a spendthrift. Since the Bavarian family money is indeed a gift.
