Indexation: according to the health index

The amounts of the Wallon child benefit are directly related to the Belgian health index. Whenever pivot index is exceeded, the Walloon child benefit amounts will increase accordingly. This pivot index was last exceeded in April 2024. The indexed amounts apply from May 2024 and will be paid out from June 2024.

You receive your monthly child benefit on your bank account on the 8th calendar day the following month at the latest. Would you like to know the exact data? Than take a peek at our page with all the payment dates.
