Are we eligible for child care benefits (børnepenge)?

Child care benefits (børnepenge, børnecheck or børne- og ungeydelse) is given to families with children from the ages 0-18 years.

When working in Denmark, families with children are eligible for receiving child benefits. If your child does not live in Denmark, you have to apply for the benefit yourself.

The amount you are entitled to receive depends on how long you have lived or worked in Denmark, in Greenland or on the Faroe Islands.
