As of April 2011 when the new Law on Social Protection was adopted, 54 unemployed parents of children with developmental disabilities, who meet the age-related conditions for exercising the right to retirement, have exercised their right to monthly allowance totalling the lowest pension in the insurance of the employed and/or RSD 12,500.
Pursuant to the new Law, the right to the specific allowance, received as a monthly benefit throughout life, is given to an unemployed parent who has taken care for 15 years of a child who is entitled to the right of increased care allowance, who is not employed and is not retired, and meets the age-related conditions for retirement (60 years of age for women and 65 years of age for men). The right to increased care allowance is currently received by 32,148 beneficiaries, who receive a monthly benefit of some RSD 20,000.
All beneficiaries who receive a monthly allowance totalling the lowest pension will keep the right to increased care allowance, because the beneficiaries of the monthly allowance are the parents, whereas their children are the beneficiaries of the increased care allowance. The life-long monthly allowance received by the parents is not a typical pension and may not be inherited.
