If you are collecting child benefit in the Netherlands and your and your partner's joint income is not very high, there is a possibility that you are entitled to a child allowance from the Dutch tax authority Belastingdienst. How much money can you get? Who can count on being granted the allowance? Learn all the necessary information about the child allowance kindgebonden budget.

Who can apply for the Kindgebonden Budget child allowance?

Kindgebonden Budget is a supplementary child benefit that can be claimed by anyone working legally in the Netherlands. You can apply for the allowance if:

  • you have a child or children under the age of 18,
  • you receive Dutch family allowance Kinderbijslag from the Social Security Board (SVB),
  • your joint income with the other parent is not high (does not exceed an annual amount of about €49,000),
  • at least one parent has Dutch citizenship or works in the Netherlands.

How to apply for Kindgebonden Budget?

Those already receiving allowances from the Dutch Tax Administration will get a notification within 8 weeks after the birth of a child if the Belastingdienst determines that the parents' income is low enough to qualify for the Kindgebonden Budget. It will be granted automatically without the need to apply.

You will also receive information about the amount of the allowance.

If you are eligible for a child allowance, but you do not receive any benefits from the Tax Administration or have not received a notice, and you think you are entitled to a child allowance, you will need to submit an appropriate, one-time application. For this purpose, you will need the following documents:

  • Jaaropgraaf or salaris (a clipping of your last paycheck)
  • marriage certificates,
  • birth certificates of children,
  • kinderbijslag family allowance decision.

You can apply for Kindgebonden Budget for up to 12 months back. We have a chance to do so if the application is submitted by August 31 of the year following the year for which we want to obtain the benefit. We must remember that any change in living, housing or family situation must be reported immediately to the Belastingdienst - they can have a significant impact on the amount of the allowance.

How much is the Kindgebonden Budget?

The amount of the allowance depends directly on the parents' income, the number of children in the family and their age. The Kindgebonden Budget child allowance can amount to a maximum of:

  • for one child -1150 €,
  • for two children -€2,050,
  • for three and more children - €2,335,

This benefit is granted when the material situation is not the best, and the amounts received under this allowance are calculated individually on the basis of the parents' income. So it's hard to say unequivocally exactly how much the allowance will amount to per child. On average, parents receive €84 per month.

Kinderbijslag family allowance - who is eligible?

Kindgebonden Budget is only a supplement to family allowance, so we should apply for Kinderbijslag first. So it is worth knowing who is entitled to it and what conditions must be met to qualify for it.

Kinderbijslag is paid by the Sociale Verzekeringsbank (SVB), the Dutch Social Insurance Fund. If you are working legally in this country and have children, you are as eligible as possible to apply for child benefit. To do so, you will need documents confirming your residence, the amount of your income and a printout showing the payment of social security contributions.
