Looking for financial support to take care of my family

Family allowances

Iriscare manages the family allowance system for children living in the Brussels Region. Family allowances are paid by the family allowance funds. https://www.iriscare.brussels/fr/citoyens/familles-avec-enfants/caisses-allocations-familiales/

Famiris, the Brussels public fund, offers each family a service according to its situation. 

Are you hosting Ukrainian families? Or are you a Ukrainian national with children living in the Brussels-Capital Region? Family allowances can be granted for children of Ukrainian families living in the Brussels Region in the frame of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

They are entitled to child benefit in Brussels if they are covered by the temporary protection scheme, have a Belgian national registration number and are officially domiciled in the Brussels-Capital Region. Ukrainian families may be assisted by the OCMW in applying for family allowances.

Do you need more information? Find a dedicated FAQ on the Famiris website as well as the procedure and application form for child benefit, also available in Ukrainian and Russian: https://famiris.brussels/fr/faq/refugies-dukraine/.
