Families who still want to apply for a COVID-19 allowance for children have until 31 October to do so. The supplement was introduced because many Flemish people, and certainly the most vulnerable, feel the financial impact of the corona crisis very much.

The allowance is a specific allowance for families with children who are entitled to Flemish family allowances. The allowance is for families who can demonstrate that their income, compared to January or February, has decreased by at least 10% in March, April, May or June and is below the income limit of 2,213 euros gross taxable income. These families receive a one-off supplement of 120 euros per child via the Groeipakket, paid out in three monthly installments.


Those who receive family benefits for their child (ren) can still apply for the COVID-19 supplement from the Groeipakket payer until 31 October. The application must be accompanied by supporting documents to demonstrate loss of income (for example, pay slips, certificates from the benefit payment institution, statement from the accountant or the social insurance fund for self-employed persons). Those eligible for the allowance will receive the first installment of 40 euros as soon as possible after approval of the application. The next two installments are always received at the beginning of the month. More info can be found on the website.
