As per 01/01/2019, Child Benefit is known as the Growth Package in Flanders. The Growth Package contains many more allowances than the previous Child Benefit.

Thus, from 2019 onwards, you may also be entitled to a Childcare Allowance, Toddler Allowance and a Study Allowance, in addition to your basic Child Benefit.
If you earn less than a specific threshold amount, then you are still entitled to a supplementary allowance.

Additional allowances for children with a specific support need also remain available. 
Each family automatically receives the allowances to which they’re entitled.
