2. Subsidies for large families

According to a study conducted by the Large Families Federation and the Madrid Vivo Foundation in late 2017, the financial situation of large families differs greatly from that of the stereotypical well-off family of yesteryear, with half of large families nowadays having trouble making ends meet.

To help them deal with the expenses caused by the arrival of a new family member and the future expenses he/she will have (for example, in education), benefits and subsidies are available for large families.

There are two types of benefits: state and regional.

The law has changed and a large family retains that status until the youngest child turns 21 (26 if still in school)
