Austria helps refugees from Ukraine in a variety of ways, including Familienbeihilfe payments for families and youth.
How to get financial assistance?
Financial support of Familienbeihilfe for children can be used by Ukrainians who found refuge from the war in Austria.
Please note that the right to payment expires together with the right to temporary residence in the country, but no later than March 2024.
Ukrainians must apply for assistance in the same way as other Austrian citizens. However, in the questionnaire, it is necessary to indicate the status of the displaced person by selecting the category "valid residence permit".
Fill out the appropriate application
Send the application to the address of the Austrian Tax Service - PO Box 260, 1000 Vienna. It cannot be sent by e-mail.
Once your application has been processed, you will receive a payment decision.
Importantly! If you have previously received a refusal from the Austrian tax authorities, you can apply again.
Prepare the necessary documents
The following documents must be attached to the application:
• child's birth certificate;
• report card, certificate or other document to confirm the child's education.
How much Familienbeihilfe payments can Ukrainians count on?
The amount of financial assistance depends on the age of your child. In 2023, the monthly amount is:
• From birth – 120.60 euros;
• from 3 years - 129 euros;
• from 10 years - 149.70 euros;
• from 19 years old – 174.70 euros.
