Answer to the question:

Can I change plans (between the basic plan and the special plan) while Iím receiving benefits?

No. The choice of benefit plan is determined by the first of the two parents to receive benefits. This decision binds the other parent, even in cases of shared custody. The choice of plan is irrevocable and applies for the full duration of the benefit period.

For example, if the first parent chooses the basic plan for maternity benefits, the basic plan will also apply for the paternity and parental benefits.
