Premium subsidies: the Canton of Zurich increased subscription limit

Previously, families were given with a taxable income of up to 53'800 Swiss francs money from the Canton to shoulder the burden of the health insurance premiums of their children. From 2020, the limit is 62'900 Swiss francs, so 9100 francs higher. The assets limit is at 300'000 Swiss francs.

In the case of lone parents, the Limit of 37'600 is raised to 41'600 Swiss francs (assets up to 300'000 Swiss francs). Here are the income classes are apparent.

44'000 children and their parents will also benefit, as the Zurich cantonal Council has today announced Thursday. He had borne in mind the principle of decision by the Federal court in "the case of Lucerne", the fixed and the premium subsidies for children and young adults in education and the Canton of Lucerne for his Stinginess rebuked.
