The family card will be produced in accordance with the information provided in the Family Support Information System (SPIS) and sent to the actual or declared place of residence. Priority will be given to the actual place of residence. Before that, however, families will receive emails requesting consent for a Family Card. Without such consent, the Family Card will not be produced and downloaded for enhanced personal data protection.
