Publication: 24/05/2022

It is an economic benefit granted to orphans and those equivalent by law to beneficiaries of the Teachers and School Managers Assistance Scheme for attending nurseries and kindergarten, primary and secondary education (up to second grade).

The attendance allowance is due to orphans of the registered beneficiary or spouse of the beneficiary of the Teachers and School Managers Assistance Scheme.

The following are equivalent to the beneficiary's orphans:

  • children of the beneficiary who have not been legally recognised by the other parent / spouse;
  • children of beneficiaries exempted from the service due to illness which involves absolute and permanent incapacity to perform profitable work;
  • children of separated or divorced beneficiaries, in the event that separation or divorce does not establish any burdens on the other parent.

What am I entitled to?

The amount of the allowance and awarding criteria vary according to the amount of the last ISEE declaration valid on the date the claim is submitted.


The requirements are stated in the call for tender published each year by the INPS. It is possible to view it in the section Call for tenders and Notices Credit and Welfare.

When can I claim?

The claim must be submitted within the terms established by the tender.

The claim must be submitted by the registered parent in service or retired (in his/her capacity as holder/ applicant) or by the surviving parent or guardian (as applicants) and, if an adult, on the date of submission of the claim directly by the student (as an applicant / beneficiary).
