KidsLife: the child benefit fund that seeks happiness for every child
If it was up to them, what would your children do with their child benefit? Watch the KidsLife experiment: it proves that happiness means something different for every child. Child benefit fund KidsLife ensures that parents receive all the benefits their children are entitled to. Because every child deserves happiness.
Federal regulations pertaining to child benefits remain in force for children residing in one of the 19 Brussels municipalities.
The Common Community Commission (GGC) will only assume responsibility for child benefits from 1/1/2020.
Child benefits are awarded to all children in Brussels. Every child is entitled to a maternity allowance, a basic amount and an age supplement. In addition to these fixed amounts, some children receive a supplementary social or participation allowance.
Please refer to our handy "children's mobile" for a simple overview of the various amounts.
We help you to obtain all the benefits your child is entitled to.

Tips from KidsLife
Check your hospitalisation insurance well in advance
Being pregnant and giving birth doesn’t come cheap. As well the expense of cute new baby clothes, a cot and mountains of nappies, you are also faced with all kinds of medical costs.
Take parental leave or keep working full time?
Do you want to spend as much time with your little one as possible? Or is arranging childcare during the holidays simply impossible? Mothers and fathers in Belgium are entitled to ‘parental leave’.
Apply for Maternity Care
These days, mothers only stay in hospital for a maximum of three days after the birth of their baby. This doesn’t give you much time to get back on your feet. Fortunately, you can apply for Maternity Care. Did you know that you can also make use of Maternity Care during your pregnancy?
