Family benefits

When you have children in Denmark, you may qualify for various grants for your children. These grants are called family benefits.

Family benefits are administered by Udbetaling Danmark - Public Benefits Administration (not the municipality). Family benefits are:

  • Child and youth benefit, also known as the ‘child cheque’ (or family allowance)
  • Child allowance
  • Child support
