Dutch social security and benefits
What benefits are available in the Netherlands for low income households?
If you work or study in the Netherlands you may be entitled to a benefit. You can apply to the Belastingdienst (Tax Authorities) in order to receive a contribution towards the costs of your Dutch healthcare insurance (zorgtoeslag), rented house (huurtoeaslag) or children (kindgebonden budget). Visit the Belastingdienst’s website in order to find general information on how benefits work.
