Support for families: Child benefit

Generally all children resident in Germany (from birth up to the age of 18years) have a statutory right to child benefit.

Under certain circumstances this is also valid for foreigners. It is most important that at least one parent has a taxed income.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Welcome Centre Greifswald for detailed information.
Currently the amount of child benefit is
  • for the first and second child € 190 per month
  • for the third child € 196 per month
  • for every additional child € 221 per month
