You can apply for a benefit using the Mijn toeslagen section, for which you require a DigiD. You can also call the Tax Information Line. They will be pleased to help you and make an appointment for you to apply for the benefit together with someone else.

If you meet the conditions, we will pay the benefit to you every month. After the end of the year, you will receive the final calculation of your benefit.
I want to submit a change
