All parents with children who live permanently in Germany are entitled to Kindergeld (child benefit). They receive a benefit of at least EUR 200 per child per month. Child benefit is paid until the child turns 18, or until the age of 25 if they are in an apprenticeship, studying or doing voluntary service. Submit your application for child benefit to the Familienkasse (family benefits department).
Child benefit supplement:
If you have a low income, you can apply to the Familienkasse for a Kinderzuschlag (child benefit supplement) in addition to standard child benefit
