This compensation is open to only one of the two parents of the household, when he cannot telecommute “, specifies the ministry.

Then, within a month, the parents concerned will be able to benefit from allowances. daily by declaring their work stoppage directly on the declare.ameli.fr teleservice. “, adds the ministry.
