How can you apply for our ‘Groeipakket’?
Your application will be submitted automatically…
… if you are already receiving a ‘Groeipakket’ for another child.
… if you applied for a ‘Startbedrag’ for your child, formerly referred to as the childbirth benefit or birth allowance.
In other exceptional cases, you must submit your application yourself.

When will you receive the ‘Groeipakket’?
The ‘Groeipakket’ you receive always covers the previous month. It will appear in your account on the 8th of each month at the latest. For example: the amount for January will arrive in your account on 8 February at the latest. You will receive some extra money in August. That is the annual school allowance. Below you can find the payment calendar of your Groeipakket.
