The birth of a child, what a wonderful moment! How do you welcome your child in the most favourable conditions? In Belgium, every child receives a small welcome gift: a maternity allowance (also called a birth grant). With this little financial boost, you can: furnish your baby's room, buy clothes and childcare equipment, or open a savings account in his or her name. It's totally your choice!
Moreover... For every birth allowance requested at Infino, we plant a tree!
Are you pregnant? Congratulations! You probably know that when you are expecting a child, you have a right to a maternity allowance, paid by your family allowance fund. This bonus is paid once when your child is born. Find below everything you need to know about this allowance.
You can apply for your maternity allowance (or birth grant) as soon as you become pregnant.
You didn't receive your pregnancy certificate yet? You can still apply for the maternity allowance. We will contact you later to collect your pregnancy certificate.
It is the (future) mother who must apply for the birth grant and who will receive the allowance.
You can apply for your maternity allowance in just a few clicks via our online form. All you need is your identity card and an account number to which the birth grant will be paid.
If you already have it, also attach a copy of your pregnancy certificate (confirming a pregnancy of more than 5 months). If not, you can send it to us later!
After applying for a maternity allowance at your child benefit fund, you don't need to take any further action. Once your file has been completed, the local administration will inform us of the birth of your child. You will then automatically receive your child benefit from the second month after the birth.
