Who is the Family Card for?
What is a large family?
A large family is a family with 3 or more children, adopted or foster children under the age of 18. Large families include children under the age of 24 if they are not in employment, have no children of their own and are studying in a comprehensive school, a vocational school under a formal education program or in a higher education institution under a full-time study program.
As a member of a wealthy family, an adult child remains in a general education school until September of the year, when traditionally university or vocational school studies begin.
A large family can have two parents or one parent. If the couple is divorced, the parent who has 3 or more children living with him / her is left with the status of a large family.
If a divorced person creates a new family with a person who also has children, the number of children in the family is estimated as a whole.
Requirements and documentation
In order to obtain a family card, all you need to do to protect your personal data is just a few steps, we will ask www.spis.lt to enter or revise your e-mail and tick a few.
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.
If the family data is not available in SPIS (this can happen if the family has not filled out or applied for the child’s money or is not entitled to receive it when the child is over 21), it is worth registering and applying online at www.spis.lt. A video guide on how to join SPIS can be viewed here.
If you do not wish to register with the system, the family card can be obtained by filling in an application with the Department of Social Services (SPPD). It can be sent by post or delivered on arrival at the SPPD. The application form is approved in the Family Card Procedure and copies of attached documents must be certified.
The application shall be accompanied by documents relating to personal data not contained in the State and departmental registers or in the State information system (as appropriate):
* Copy of the applicant’s identity document
* “Family (Cohabiting) Data for Social Assistance Form SP-1” (may be completed in SPIS) approved by Order of the Minister of Social Security and Labor of the Republic of Lithuania “On Approval of Certain Forms Required for Social Assistance” (review law)
* Judgment on the place of residence of the child (ren)
* Certification of a full-time education institution of basic, secondary, vocational and higher education when a child is of age.
