What is Kindergeld?

Kindergeld is a state benefit that is available to all parents in Germany regardless of their income.

How much?

Kindergeld is 250€ per child per month, from birth (if you are eligible from birth) until they turn 18, sometimes later if they are still financially dependent.


You are eligible even if:

  • you don’t work
  • you live abroad but have a German employment contract, pay your taxes in Germany
  • you are not German
  • you have a high income

Why would you needSUPPORT with your Kindergeld application?


You feel like you don’t want to get bogged down by another administrative task.


You dont have time to take care of it between your work and your pregnancy (or with your baby if baby is already born)


You want to make sure you are doing everything right and dont want to make a mistake

Take your pick!

I have worked with over 300 families helping them with their paperwork. I have seen complex cases ranging from the baby being born abroad, families relocating to Germany, families claiming similar benefits abroad and topping up their claim with the German Kindergeld.
