Goodbye child benefit,
On 1 January 2019, child benefit in Flanders will get a new name. From then on, it will be referred to as the ‘Groeipakket’: financial support provided in monthly basic amounts that may include supplements.
This may or may not affect you.
- If you were already receiving child benefit before 1 January 2019, you will continue to receive the same amounts under the ‘Groeipakket’.
- If your child is born after 1 January 2019, you will receive the new amounts of the ‘Groeipakket’ for that child.
To find out more about the child benefit changes in the ‘Groeipakket’ or if you want to know exactly how much you will receive, consult our ‘Groeipakket’ tree with a convenient overview of the amounts. Wise up at the touch of a button.
