Many parents think that filling the state forms for optimal application is sufficient. They rely on the clerk in the parental allowance offices and assume that this grant parents the maximum parental allowance.

Unfortunately, this is a fallacy.

The clerk consider your application only to gross errors of form and completeness of the systems. An "optimization" of your application through specific questions through the clerk is not provided. The parental benefit is granted on the basis of the completed application and never the parents would get the idea that their actually have a much higher or longer fee paid parental allowance would have been entitled.
