Belgium - french 2015/16 - family allowances
Date of publication: 2016
Family allowances Family allowances from EUR 90.28/month depend on the number of children. They are in principle received by the mother of the child while the student is in education or training, until the age of 25. The student should have no professional activity other than a student job and work no more than 50 days during the year. However when the student is not living with or supported by her/his mother, family allowances are paid to the parent, relative or legal guardian who actually supports the child. Responsibility for family allowances was transferred from the federal level to the regional level (to the Flemish Community, the German- speaking Community, the Walloon Region and Common Community Commission for the Brussels-Capital Region) in 2014.
