CAE – Fund for the Future of Children
In Luxembourg, home helps are differently paid according to your family and professional situation, the composition of your family, your place of residence,…
Since the 1st of August 2016, the system has changed for the new residents.
The women whose pregnancy, childbirth and follow-up of their child until he’s 2 have been taken care of in Luxembourg (backing medical certificates up) can aim for a birth allowance.
The welfare and the allowances for the child’s future are monthly financial services intended to help the households raise their children by compensating for the family loads, that is for the financial expenses linked to the child’s care and education.
The system has changed on the 1st of August 2016. What can you claim according to your date of arrival in Luxembourg or your child’s date of birth?
The welfare is paid to all the resident families from which the child was born before the 1st of August 2016, settled in Luxembourg or which began to work in Luxembourg before this date.
Since August 1st, 2016, the allowance for the child’s future is paid to the children born at or after this date, or when the enquirer began to work or settled down in Luxembourg at this date or later.
This allowance is annually paid before the schooled children aged 6 or more go back to school, and until the end of the secondary education or 25 years old at the latest.
The allowance demands must be made with the Caisse pour l’Avenir des Enfants (CAE).
An additional allowance for handicapped children can be granted to you as a supplement to the welfare. More information here.
As a complement to the welfare detailed above, you can also benefit from supplementary fiscal advantages owing to children to support.
Are your children welcomed by a day nursery, a day household, a halfway house within the framework of the fundamental school?
You can benefit from Chèque-Service-Accueil. More information here.
