L’single child allowance 2021 promises to revolutionize the support system for Italian families.
After so much waiting and confusion about the details of the single check – from the requirements ISEE ai amounts, from the calculation how to do it question – finally some clarity has arrived. The Government in fact decided on the occasion of the CdM of 4 June to proceed with a decree which acts as bridge solution choose from 1st July until 31st December 2021. The single child allowance is expected to become universal and a structural measure in 2022.
Meanwhile, it is useful to anticipate that among the recipients of the single child allowance 2021 there are exclusively households with at least one minor child with an ISEE of up to 50,000 euros.
Among those who are entitled to the single allowance there is only one large group, that is who does not benefit from family allowances.
Among these are found not only unemployed, self-employed and incompetent, but also employees who do not benefit from the ANF. The amount of the single part allowance ranges from a minimum of 30 euros up to a maximum of 217.8 euros per month per child, considering an additional increase of 30% from the third child onwards.
However, the employees who use the ANF, who in 2022 will see them disappear in favor of a universal single check valid for them too, are not left behind. For them, a surcharge is foreseen on the ANF, again starting from July 2021.
Guide to single child allowance 2021
Single child allowance 2021: requirements
Let’s start by defining what the single allowance for children is. It has been talked about for months now with the promise of revolutionizing aid for families. Given the complexity of its implementation, however, the Cabinet preferred to proceed with a bridging measure for 2021.
The one-child allowance currently confirmed and official was approved by the CdM on June 4, 2021 and provides for the following:
- valid from 1 July to 31 July 2021;
- the single allowance in 2021 is reserved only for those who do not receive family allowances;
- these must be families with an ISEE of less than 50,000 euros;
- the single allowance is intended for each dependent child;
- the child (or children) can be up to 18 years of age (unlike the macro-project discussed in recent months, which spoke of a benefit in favor of children up to 21 years of age).
More specifically, the recipients of the single check 2021 include:
- self-employed (people who work independently, without subordination and without an employer, but through agreements and contracts with clients. Generally the self-employed, whether they are entrepreneurs or freelancers, work through a VAT number);
- inactive subjects (people who have not looked for work in the four weeks preceding the one taken as a reference and / or are not willing to look for work in the two weeks following that taken as a reference),
- incapable subjects (people who have such a low income that they do not have to declare it to the tax authorities, i.e. up to € 8,174.00 per year, a threshold below which we speak of no tax area);
- earners of Basic income,
- employees who do not benefit from family allowances.
In any case, it is necessary:
- be Italian citizens or citizens of an EU state, with the right of residence or a citizen of a non-EU state with an EU permit “for long-term residents or a residence permit for work or research purposes lasting at least six months»;
- pay taxes in Italy;
- be resident and domiciled in Italy;
- have dependent children up to 18 years of age;
- be resident in Italy for at least two years (even non-continuous);
- to have “an open-ended or fixed-term employment contract lasting at least six months», In the case of employees who do not use ANF.
Single child allowance for employees
The big excluded of this bridge decree that introduces the single allowance for children in 2021 seem to be the employees who already benefit from the allowances to the family unit (ANF). However, this is not the case. For this category the same decree provides, in fact:
- an increase in the amount of the ANF of 37,5 euro for each child for families with up to two children;
- an increase in the amount of the ANF of 55 euro for each child for families of three or more children.
Please note that employees who do not receive ANF (and in whose family there is no one who uses them) can also apply for the single allowance for children, and that starting from 2022 the single allowance will be structural also for this category, by deleting a whole series of welfare measures listed at the end of this study.

Single check amount calculation
How is single check calculated? No calculation is needed to define the amount of the single allowance. In fact, it is the same law that introduces him to define the ISEE ranges and the relative amount of the monthly allowance for each child.
Following the principle of who has less need more, the amount of the single check 2021 is higher the lower the ISEE; vice versa, the higher the ISEE (but in any case within € 50,000), the lower the single check.
As can be seen from the table above, there are two amounts for each ISEE range: the first, lower, represents the money I expect for the month for each minor child, whether one or two in the same family unit, while for a unit with three children or over the amount for each child is higher.
In addition, all the above amounts available in the single allowance table provide for an increase of 50 euros for each minor child with a disability.
Let’s take some examples:
A household that meets the above requirements to receive the single allowance in 2021 has only one child it’s a ISEE of 15,000.00 euros. He will receive a single check for 83.8 euros per month.
A household that meets the above requirements to receive the single allowance in 2021 has two sons it’s a ISEE of 15,000.00 euros. Per month he will receive a single check equal to 167.6 euros (83.8 + 83.8 euros). In fact, please note, the amount of the single allowance is intended for each child.
A family unit that meets the above requirements to receive the single allowance in 2021 has three children and an ISEE of 15.000,00 euro. Per month he will receive a single allowance equal to € 326.7 (€ 108.9 X 3, as there is a surcharge that applies to the amounts for each child).
A household that meets the above requirements to receive the single allowance in 2021 has two children, one of whom is disabled and an ISEE of 15.000,00 euro. Per month he will receive a single allowance equal to 217.6 euros (83.8 + 83.8 + 50 euros, the latter amount due to the increase of 50 euros per month for each disabled child).
How to apply for a single check?
How and when to apply for a single allowance 2021? The procedure must be carried out through INPS by 30 June 2021 if you want to take advantage of the check as of July. Otherwise, the application can be submitted at any time with effect from the current month with respect to the date of submission of the request to INPS – if the single check is requested by 30 September 2021, however, you are also entitled to the arrears of July. and August.

Single check and citizenship income

The allowance is also compatible with any other cash assistance measures provided by Regions, local authorities or autonomous provinces, with the exception of the allowance for the family unit.
Those who already receive citizenship income do not have to apply for the single child allowance 2021: the amount to which they are entitled is paid directly by INPS, following the same payment methods as the RdC.
What replaces the single check from 2022
Net of this transitional sentence until the end of 2021 and its incompatibility with the ANF, once it becomes structural in 2022, the single child allowance will replace a whole series of welfare measures for families, which will cease to exist, including which:
