The Netherlands has three types of child benefits:
Citizens of the European Union, citizens of countries from European Economic Area (EEA) and from Switzerland that pay Dutch social insurance (AKW) and have a child (or children) younger than 18. Also in case that a person received child benefit in their home country and the Dutch benefits would be higher, it is possible to get the difference paid from the Netherlands. To apply you need to have Burgerservicenummer of the child. If you do not have it, you can get it additionally. Kinderbijlag is paid off quarterly.
