Child benefit

If you or your partner gets non-Dutch child benefit

You or your partner may get child benefit from another country or from an international organization. This will be the case if:

  • you or your partner works for an international organization, or
  • you or your partner works for the government of a country other than the Netherlands, or
  • you work in the Netherlands and your partner lives and works in another country

Dutch child benefit or child benefit from another country?

There are agreements in place between countries that determine which country's child benefit has priority. If you or your partner gets non-Dutch child benefit and the amount is lower than the Dutch amount, the SVB will supplement the non-Dutch child benefit to the level of the Dutch child benefit.
