A teenager can be entitled to a Groeipakket as a school leaver for up to 12 months after finishing its studies. 

A school leaver must meet the same employment conditions as a job student.

The teenager may work a maximum of 600 hours per year under a student contract.

In addition, the child may:

  • work 80 hours per month under another contract
  • only pursue a self-employed activity in which no contributions are due as a self-employed person in main occupation
  • not receive social benefits.
