If you live or work in the Netherlands and you have children, you are entitled to receive Dutch child benefits (kinderbijslag). Child benefits are paid after the end of each quarter for children up to age 18.

If you have just come to live in the Netherlands, or have adopted a child, or want to claim child benefits at a point in time other than the child's birth, you can request a claim form from the Social Insurance Institute (Sociale Verzekeringsbank/SVB). The SVB office serving your area will then take a decision on your entitlement.

The Form claim for Expats can only be used by people which completed their registration at The Hague International Centre.
