Who is entitled to an allowance?
Children with a disability or disorder are entitled to receive additional support. Children suffering from a long-term chronic illness, cancer, etc. are also entitled to an extra allowance to make their care more financially bearable.
Each disability, condition or disorder is assessed using three pillars:
1. The physical and mental consequences
2. The impact on your child’s daily routine (e.g., mobility, learning ability)
3. The impact on your family (e.g., medical treatment, necessary travel)
The doctor from FPS Social Security assigns a number of points to each pillar. Your child is entitled to an additional allowance if at least four points are achieved in the first pillar or at least six points are achieved for the three pillars combined.
