Single child allowance 2021, the bridge rule arrives in the Council of Ministers. According to what Adnkronos learns from government sources, the so-called ‘bridge rule’ on the single universal allowance for families will also arrive in the CDM, confirming the departure from next July 1st without postponements or postponements. From that date, the bridging rule should allow ‘coverage’ only for some categories that until now were without it, such as unemployed and self-employed workers. Then from 2022 the extension of the allowance will be provided. The bridging measure will thus make it possible to make up for the lack of implementing decrees, which risked postponing the start of the grant for the categories in question at the beginning of next year.
The single child allowance is defined in law 46/2021, published in the Official Gazette number 82 of 6 April 2021m which delegates the government to adopt one or more legislative decrees aimed at “reorganizing, simplifying and strengthening the measures to support dependent children through the single and universal check “.
WHO IS IT – The benefit will be attributed to employees, self-employed or incompetent. All mothers from the seventh month of pregnancy can apply. Furthermore, from 18 years of age, a reduced sum compared to the allowance could be credited directly to the child if: he is enrolled at university; is a trainee; is enrolled in a professional course; carries out the civil service; has a low-income job.
The single family allowance consists of a monthly allowance for all families who have a dependent child up to 21 years of age. Furthermore, the allowance has a maximum value of 250 euros, based on the ISEE, and is made up of a fixed value and a variable value depending on the overall income of the family.

SINGLE CHILD CHILD, ISEE AND AMOUNT: HOW MUCH IS IT WORTH?
According to a simulation recently carried out by the Arel / Feg / Alliance for Childhood Working Group, the allowance in some cases risks a ‘cut’ in the amount compared to 250 euros. The check – as a tax credit or monthly credit – will include the currently existing facilities and will be linked to the ISEE. According to the scenario envisaged, 80% of Italian families would take 161 euros per month for each minor child and 97 for each child under 21. The calculation is linked to the consideration that 8 out of 10 families have an ISEE below 30 thousand euros. The amount of the allowance decreases if the Isee is raised: for an Isee above 52 thousand euros, the contribution drops to 67 euros per month for minor children and 40 euros for adult children but under the age of 21. The framework would favor the self-employed and the incompetent, categories currently excluded from family allowances. Employees would be disadvantaged: 1.35 million families would lose an average of € 381 per year. To close this disparity, it is emphasized, 800 million more are needed per year.
