Allowance for children with intensive care needs
Does your child require intensive care and are you entitled to child benefit for your child? Then you can request an allowance of 1437 dollars gross from the 1st of November to the 30th of December 2022 if your child is 3 years or older, but is not yet 18 years old. This allowance serves as compensation for the double child benefit for parents of children with intensive care needs, which will be introduced at a later date.
The SZW unit of RCN cannot personally determine whether your child requires intensive care. This is done based on medical advice that we receive via Sentro Akseso (Bonaire) or Public Health (Saba and Sint Eustatius). To make things easier for you, you can submit the application for the allowance for children that require intensive care directly to the organisations below. They can also help you to complete the medical questionnaire.
