I received a letter from 'Kinderbijslag' - I am registered as a Ph.D. student - do I receive this extra family allowance?
This is a standard letter sent to all registered students. When you are registered as a Ph.D. student you have no right on these family allowances or 'Kinderbijslag'.
When you have children yourself, living with you in Belgium, you can apply for these family allowances.
If you receive a Dehousse grant you have to contact the personnel department, if you receive a grant from your home country you have to contact the Euraxess Service Centre/International Relations Office. They will start a special registration procedure.
