Did you already receive a birth benefit before the birth or adoption of your child? Then you will automatically receive the monthly Groeipakket from the payment fund that paid your birth benefit. In other cases (e.g. you move to Flanders), you can apply for the Groeipakket yourself.

There are five Groeipakket payment funds. You choose yourself who pays your Groeipakket. You can only change your payment fund after one year of affiliation.

If you choose a new payment fund, this choice applies to all children in your family. You will then remain affiliated for at least one year.
