Apply for monthly foster child support benefits

In the case of full-time care benefits, the necessary maintenance of the minor and young adult is ensured by ongoing benefits. The necessary maintenance includes the costs for material expenses and for care and education.

To ensure the necessary maintenance of foster children, ongoing benefits are granted in the form of lump sums for the costs of material expenses and care and education.

The lump sums for the costs of material expenses are graduated according to age and cover the entire, regularly recurring living expenses of a foster child. The lump sums for care and education are not dependent on age.


You have a permit for full-time care according to § 44 SGB VIII and are in a foster relationship of full-time care.
