Single parents are eligible to receive an allowance provided they
reside in Iceland
have at lease two dependent children under the age of 18
are registered at the same legal domicile as the dependent children who form the basis for their eligibility
These payments are taxed as income but the amount of the allowance is not affected by your income level. Note that this application is available only in Icelandic. You may access it after logging into the user portal at the Social Insurance Administration (TR) website and then clicking on "umsóknir" (applications) and finally "mæðra- og feðralaun".
