Schooltoeslag (school allowance)
The school allowance is an annual support for families with school-age children who are on a low income.
Generally, your payment fund can automatically calculate and pay the school allowance. You do not have to do anything. Making sure they go to school every day is sometimes a job in itself.
The school allowance is for pupils in pre-school, primary, secondary education and higher vocational education (HBO5) nursing.
Does your child attend university college or university?
Your child will no longer receive a school allowance, but may well receive a study allowance.
