Child allowances - Familienbeihilfe - in 2022, 2021, 2020 and 2019

In 2019-2022, the amount of the allowances was determined depending on the age and the child's permanent residence. This means that if your child lived in an EU country other than Austria, you received a reduced amount of child benefit according to that country. Information on the amount of benefits for each country is available on the official website.
