Families are the most important social network in society. In order to preserve the importance of families in the future, Liechtenstein pursues policies aimed at creating the right legal, social and economic conditions for a pleasant family life.
Citizens with children deserve to be supported by the state. This idea forms the central pillar of Liechtenstein's family policy, which is designed to adapt to the different situations that come with changes in society in order to provide the best possible support for each individual family.
The government supports families both financially and by providing services and infrastucture. Families in Liechtenstein receive allowances following the birth of a child and while it is growing up. They also benefit from tax breaks and can, if necessary, apply for rent allowances. Support is provided in difficult times. There are also out-of-home childcare provisions and a series of measures designed to make reconciling family and career as easy as possible.
