Katalin Novák, Minister of Family Affairs, said the state top-up cap for baby bonds, a high-yield security available to Hungarian new-borns, will double to HUF 12,000 (EUR 32) as of January next year.
According to MTI, the start-of-life subsidy scheme has been available to new parents who open a baby bond account for their child since 2006. Since 2018, the bonds have also been available for Hungarian children born abroad, Novák said on Facebook. The minister encouraged new parents to choose the baby bond as a form of savings which pays a premium.
