Easier application for benefits for families


Submitting applications for 500+ support electronically is even easier. More banks joined the ones which have already enabled their clients to set up a trusted profile. Thanks to the trusted profile, you can apply for 500+ benefit and other forms of support without leaving home.


Since 1 August, you can apply for the child benefit from the government's programme “Family 500 plus” as well as family benefits and benefits from the maintenance fund for the new benefit period. One date from which you can apply for these forms of support has been introduced for the convenience of families.


More time for family


As a result, applicants can attend to all formalities at the same time, and spend time saved this way with their family.


Without leaving home


The application for child benefit of 500+ and other forms of support can be submitted in person or by mail. However, those who wish to apply for the benefits without leaving home may do this on the Internet. They have 4 channels to choose from, including: the ministerial portal Emp@tia (, electronic banking, PUE ZUS – Electronic Services Platform of the ZUS and the website


Helpful wizards


Emp@tiaportal provides user-friendly wizards to fill in applications for benefits. This makes the submission process very simple, intuitive. The wizard automatically suggests a large amount of data in the electronic forms and indicates the required attachments. As a result, the applicant fills in as little information as possible. This solution not only facilitates the process but also minimises errors, which in turn allows faster issuance of decisions on granting benefits.


Minimum formalities


The Ministry of Family is focusing on the so-called culture of statements of dealing with official matters on-line. In principle, the applicant does not attach any paper certificates. In order to submit an application, he or she does not need to gather documents beforehand and waste time to prepare them. This will allow taking care of matters without unnecessary obstacles. Where possible, the state will verify the facts based on data in the databases at its disposal.
