Have you worked in another EU country in recent years?
If you work in another EU country, you can claim the same amount of child benefit as if you were living in that country. Depending on the host country, you can make a retroactive claim for up to five years!

But we are currently focusing on applying for child benefit in:

Apply for child benefits through UnionTAX!
Receiving the money
Once the child benefit for your children has been received by UnionTAX, the money will be transferred to your account!
To receive child benefit, you must have at least one child. Child benefit payments terminate at the end of the month in which the child turns 18.
Children who are still in school, vocational training or university after the age of 18 can continue to receive child benefit if the relevant documents proving their status are submitted to the family allowance fund and if a new application is submitted.
Child benefit is paid until the child reaches the age of 25. Children who have already reached the age of 18 can also receive child benefit under certain conditions.
