INPS annually publishes a call for tender for the payment of an economic contribution for the reimbursement of expenses incurred in registering with and attending nurseries.
The call for tender is aimed at children (including orphans and persons treated as such) of dependent workers of the Poste Italiane SpA Group and ex IPOST dependent workers, subject to a monthly deduction of 0.40% as referred to in Article 3 of Law no. 208 of 27 March 1952, and pensioners who were dependent workers with the Poste Italiane SpA Group and ex IPOST dependent workers.
The following may also apply for participation:
- the spouse of the policy holder, in the event of the latter's death, as a “surviving parent”;
- the spouse of the policy holder, with the latter being deprived of parental responsibility, as a “claiming parent”;
- the unmarried parent of the policy holder, in the event of the latter’s death or in the event that the latter is deprived of parental responsibility;
- the guardian of the child or of the orphan of the policy holder.
The contribution amount and the means of payment are indicated in the call for tender.
Children or orphans of the policy holder are admitted to the competition for whom, during the school year indicated in the call for tender, costs relating to registering with attending nurseries were incurred.
When making their claim, the applicant must have submitted their Single Substitute Statement (DSU) for the determination of the regular ISEE (or, in cases provided for by law, of the ISEE for minors with unmarried and non-cohabiting parents).
The ISEE declaration refers to the family unit to which the beneficiary belongs – issued by INPS on the applicant’s submission of the DSU – and is required for determining the classification position.
Failure to submit the DSU before making the claim to participate in the competition will result in the beneficiary being demoted in the relevant ranking.
After the notice has been published and the claim to participate in the competition has been submitted, each participant in the selection will be able to view the status of the file online within the reserved area.
How can I claim?
The claim must be made to INPS online by using the dedicated service, digitally, and must include receipts relating to the cost of registering with and attending nurseries in the school year indicated in the relevant competition notice.
The deadline for making a claim is established by the call for tender.
