Child benefit

Changing your bank account details

You can change your bank account details quickly, easily and safely online via My SVB using your DigiD code with SMS verification. Or you can use the DigiD app.

How to change your bank account details.

Go to My SVB and select: 'Ik wil inloggen met een extra controle via sms' (I want to log on with additional SMS verification) or 'Ik wil inloggen met de DigiD app' (I want to log on with the DigiD app).

How soon will the change take effect?

If you let us know your new account number before the 22nd day of the month, the next payment will be made to your new account.

NB: a change can only be reported by the person who actually receives the child benefit. This is the person to whom our letters are addressed.

Go to www.digid.nl and log on to 'Mijn DigiD' with your username and password. Select 'Extra controle via sms instellingen' (Additional verification by SMS code) and then ‘Controle via sms aanvragen’ (I want to apply for SMS verification).
