KidsLife does not choose the date of payout of child benefit or maternity allowance. The government decides when it can be deposited. These rules apply to every child benefit fund.
The general principle is that the child benefit will be deposited the 8th of every month. This also counts for the family allowances in the new Growth Package. If the 8th occurs in the weekend, we pay your child benefit the last workday before the weekend.
Saturday, June 8, 2019 -> We deposit the child benefit Friday, June 7, 2019.
It is possible you receive your child benefit a little earlier. This depends on different aspects.
- In what region you live, Flanders, Wallonia or Brussels?
- Do you receive your child benefit via bank account or by cheque?
- Which bank are you associated with? The processing hours may differentiate with each bank
- Which month is it?
There are a lot of aspects that matter in the calculation and deposit of child benefit. Below you can find the calendar of payments of the child benefit and growth package in 2019:

Payout of your Childcare allowance
Do you live in Flanders or does your child go to a particular Dutch-speaking daycare, then you possibly have the right to receive childcare allowances. The payout will happen the 20th of each month.
