Child benefit

If you have further children

If you already receive Dutch child benefit and another child is born to you in the Netherlands, you do not need to do anything. We will adjust your child benefit automatically. You will be sent a letter stating the new amount.

If you live outside the Netherlands when your child is born, you must inform us of the birth of your child.

It is important to register your child with your health insurer within 4 weeks of the birth. If you do not do so, there is a possibility that your health insurer will not reimburse you for the medical expenses.
