Receiving Anw benefits outside the Netherlands

If you receive an Anw benefit and you live outside the Netherlands, it may take longer before you receive your benefit payments in your bank account. This will depend on your bank and the country where you live.

Most payments are sent out on or around the 1st and 15th of the month. We usally pay Anw benefits in euros. But sometimes we pay the benefits in the currency of the receiving country.
