Reimbursement for the purchase of baby essentials
Who is it for and what are the requirements?
In favour of persons under international protection (refugee status, subsidiary protection and asylum seekers), temporary protection and special protection under the Employment Agency, or involved in training courses provided by Formatemp dedicated to them, reimbursement is possible for expenses for the purchase of goods necessary for the care of your child up to 3 years of age (e.g. Stroller, changing table, cot, baby food; etc.).
Included among the expenses for the purchase of goods necessary for the care of their child up to 3 years, if the refugees are not able to benefit from the Nursery School Contribution benefit, are also the care and baby-sitting services exclusively aimed at enabling the participation of the parent(s) in the training courses.
The applicant must have an employment contract or be attending the training course provided by Formatemp under this agreement at the time of purchase of the item.
Only purchases made after 24.02.2022 will be reimbursed (the date of the purchase receipt must be after that date) and in any case until 31.12.2023 with proof of expenditure issued in Italy.
It should therefore be noted that the aforementioned requirements must be accrued in the period between 24 February 2022 and 31.12.2023.
What you can get:
Reimbursement of expenses for the purchase of goods necessary for the care of your child up to 3 years of age (e.g. stroller, changing table, cot, baby food, etc.). The reimbursement is granted for each child up to a maximum of €800 gross. A maximum of 6 applications may be submitted per child, and in any case within the maximum limit of €800. Reimbursement cannot be granted based on expenditure documents from which the purchased goods cannot be identified.
Payments are allowed by so-called "account cards with IBAN" cards (e.g. Poste Pay Evolution cards) or domiciled bank transfers. For domiciled wire transfers, payment is allowed within the maximum threshold of 1,500 €; for higher amounts it is necessary to indicate an IBAN in the name of the subject under international or temporary protection.
Payments to foreign current accounts outside the SEPA area are not allowed.

Provisions common to all of the above extraordinary benefits
It is specified that all the support and reception measures listed above may be allocated to recipients who have been initiated in Formatemp training courses dedicated to them, although not yet laid out in the skills audit. This is also applicable in relation to applications already submitted and suspended due to the absence from the skill audits themselves.
If the required documentation is missing, Ebitemp will suspend the process and send the request for additional documentation, which must be received within 120 calendar days, after which, if no additional documentation is received, the application will be considered waived and therefore rejected.
If the application was not submitted using the correct benefit section of the portal/paper application form, the submitted application will be cancelled and a new application will have to be submitted in accordance with the deadlines set out in the relevant regulation. The date of receipt of the new submission will be the decisive date for processing the application.
