If you are going to live or work outside the Netherlands

If you start living or working outside the Netherlands, your Dutch child benefit may change, or stop completely. Instead, you may get child benefit from the country where you are living or working. Read about the changes to your Dutch child benefit if you start living or working outside the Netherlands.

If you work in the Netherlands but you live in another country, you will still get Dutch child benefit if the country you live in is a member of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA), or if it is a treaty country (a country that has a social security agreement with the Netherlands).

If you start working outside the Netherlands, your Dutch child benefit will normally stop and you will probably get child benefit from the other country. However, there are some exceptions to this.
