If you reside in Brussels, you can apply for maternity allowance even before your baby is born!

Foster parent

Foster parent 

As a foster parent, you are responsible for the care and costs associated with raising your foster child. You will therefore receive the full basic amount, potentially supplemented with allowances and social allowances for your foster child. You do not need to apply for this. We will automatically be informed of the placement by the competent foster care authorities and will immediately make the necessary changes to your file! 

I want to adopt


Adopting a child is a major commitment. Parents who welcome an adopted child into their family are entitled to an adoption bonus. This allowance is the same as the baby bonus for newborns.
