claim child benefit

Do you have one or more children? In principle, every child is entitled to child benefit from birth until the age of 18.

Child benefit is granted for all children up to the age of 18. Under certain conditions, child benefit may continue to be paid beyond that age, including if the child is still in school or vocational training.

Child benefit is paid monthly in the amount of 250 euros per child
