Up until what age are you entitled to Child Benefit or the Growth Package?
An unconditional entitlement to Child Benefit applies up to the age of 18 in Flanders, and up to and including the month of August of the year in which the young person concerned turns 18 in Brussels and Wallonia. Providing that you satisfy certain conditions, you can retain your Child Benefit entitlement up to the age of 25 in the event that the young person concerned continues their studies or qualifies as a (job-seeking) school leaver after completing their studies.
If you live in Wallonia, a semi-automatic entitlement to Child Benefit applies. This semi-automatic entitlement to Child Benefit applies until the end of the month in which the young person concerned turns 21. This means that the young person is entitled to Child Benefit regardless of whether they’re still studying or registered as a job-seeker, except in specific circumstances.
