Intended for parents with children aged 6 to 18 (subject to means-tested), the amount of this aid amounts to € 370.31 for the youngest.
The amount of the back-to-school allowance has been revised downwards compared to 2020, the year in which it was exceptionally increased by € 100. Thus, for children aged 6 to 10 on December 31, 2021, the allowance will be € 370.31 this year. It will be € 390.74 for 11-14 year olds (under 15 on December 31) and, finally, € 404.28 for 15-18 year olds.
The ceilings are approximately the same as those for 2020, except for a few hundred euros: € 25,319 with a dependent child, € 31,162 if you have two children, € 37,005 if you have three children, and € 5,843 additional per child.
For people already receiving benefits and who are entitled to it, the back-to-school allowance will be paid to them automatically for children who will be between 6 and 15 years old on December 31, 2021.
People who are not beneficiaries must download a form from the Caf website and then return it.
Young people aged 16 to 18 (born between September 16, 2003 and December 31, 2005 inclusive) must be declared as enrolled or in apprenticeship on the Caf site or application.
Finally, for children entering CP at the start of the school year but who will not be six years old until 2022, a school certificate must be sent to CAF.
