Child benefit

Child benefit if you or your child lives outside the Netherlands

We will pay or continue to pay child benefit if you or your child lives or starts living in a country with which the Netherlands has an agreement on the verification of entitlement to benefits, including child benefit.

These countries include the Member States of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EER), and Switzerland. Child benefit can also be paid to other countries, but often only at a reduced rate. The amount payable will be adjusted to the price level of the country where your child lives. For each country, there is a fixed percentage of the full child benefit that can be paid.

Enter the country where your child lives or is going to live to find out whether the Netherlands has an agreement with this country and whether the child benefit will be adjusted to the price level of this country.
