In Flanders it is determined by law that the Growth Package/child benefits have to be deposited on your bank account at the latest on the 8th calendar day of the month following the month of reference. If the 8th falls on a weekend, your child allowances have to be on your account by Friday before said weekend. On top of that, Parentia makes weekly payments in case a correction has to be made to your file.
The daycare supplement (KOT) is paid around the 20th of each month. Kinder garden supplement is paid the month following the 3rd or 4th birthday of your child. Your annual school bonus will be paid in August together with your Growth Package of July and possible scholarships are paid between the 1st of September and the 31st of December. From the moment your Growth Package file is active, the deposit will be carried out automatically.
In any case, at Parentia we make sure payments are carried out correctly and on time. You chose to receive your payments by cheque? Then your cheque should be in your mail box at the latest three days after the aforementioned date.*
