Child benefit

In some cases, the SVB will pay child budget and/or childcare benefit.

If you receive supplementary Dutch family benefits on top of non-Dutch family benefits, the SVB will pay child budget and/or childcare benefit instead of the Tax Administration (Belastingdienst).

You will receive this from us after the end of the quarter.

If you get a Dutch supplement on top of non-Dutch family benefits

Many countries pay family benefits to families with children. In the Netherlands, family benefits may consist of child benefit, child budget and childcare benefit. In some cases, people can get family benefits from the Netherlands and from another country as well. There are agreements in place between countries that determine which country's family benefits have priority. If you get the full amount of family benefits from another EU country or an EEA country or Switzerland, for example, and the amount of similar Dutch family benefits per child is higher, you will receive a supplement from the Netherlands to bring the amount you receive up to the Dutch level.

If you get child budget and/or childcare benefit, we will check whether family benefits you receive from another EU country or an EEA country or Switzerland are less than the Dutch child benefit and/or child budget or childcare benefit. If that is the case, we will supplement your non-Dutch family benefits to the level of the similar Dutch family benefits. You will then receive the Dutch supplementary family benefits per quarter, after the end of each quarter.
