Child benefit payment

Child benefit is available from birth until (at least) at the age of 18 of your child.

Child benefit will be paid monthly from 01.01.2021 in the following amount:

  • for the first two children, EUR 219.00 each,
  • for the third child EUR 225.00 euro and
  • eur 250.00 for each additional child.

Child benefit for children over the age of 18:

Since 2012, the income check for children under 25 years of age for children under 25 years of age has been eliminated. Child benefit is granted independently of income.

Child benefit for a child over 18 years old may be paid from January 2007 at the most until the age of 25. This was the case for the first time for children born after 01.01.1983. Children who are in education (school, vocational training or studies) receive child benefit until the age of 25.

For a disabled child, child benefit is still paid beyond the age of 25 without age limit, provided that the disability was already present before the age of 25.

Married children are only entitled to child benefit if the spouse cannot pay for the child's maintenance.
