Child benefit

When working in Denmark, families with children are eligible for receiving child benefits.

In order to receive child benefits, you must have had an address or employment in Denmark for a minimum of 6 months.

If you already receive child benefits from another country, this will be deducted in the benefit you receive from your municipality.

Additionally, during the last 10 years you must have had an address or employment in Denmark for:

  • 6 months in order to have earned 25 percent of the total benefit
  • 1 year in order to have earned 50 percent of the total benefit
  • 1.5 years in order to have earned 75 percent of the total benefit
  • 2 years in order to have earned the total benefit
