Why does it take 2 years to validate Social Allowances?
You are entitled to a Social Allowance if your gross family income is less than a certain threshold. We receive an overview of your total family income from the FPS Finance, based on your tax return.
Your definitive data is only available 2 years later.
For example, your 2019 income will only be available in 2021.
Thus it is only possible to make a (definitive) validation of your Social Allowance entitlement 2 years after the date.
Already received a Social Allowance payment? Then we will check whether you have received this correctly.
Not yet received a Social Allowance payment? Then we will examine your eligibility and potentially pay the supplement retroactively.
