Slovakia - Country Profile on the European Semester and COVID-19 crisis

The government’s support to families and children during the crisis was inadequate. The Slovak government did not address the needs of families and children adequately during the pandemic. In particular, no special allowance to support families in vulnerable situations was introduced. The Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family extended the provision of parental allowance to parents who lost their entitlement to it in March 2020 and did not have a job to return to, and had no other income. It was paid until the end of the emergency in April 2020.
