One-time benefits when a foster child is admitted

Service Description

When a foster child is admitted, foster carers receive one-off and flat-rate allowances/benefits.

  1. Initial furnishing of the home

When a foster child is admitted, foster carers receive a one-off flat-rate allowance.
The allowance covers

  • The renovation and initial furnishing of a room for the foster child,
  • the initial provision of school supplies,
  • initial equipment with a bicycle, child seat, helmet, etc.

The amount is paid with the first foster care allowance. A separate application is not required.

When a child is admitted up to the age of one, an additional lump sum can be granted upon informal application (initial baby equipment).

Needs exceeding these amounts are covered by the current care allowance.

  1. Initial equipment with clothing
  • When a foster child is admitted, a one-time, age-dependent lump sum is paid for the initial provision of clothing.
  • If the foster child was in an out-of-home youth welfare measure of more than 6 months duration before admission to the foster family, the allowance is reduced to half of the lump sum.

The allowance is paid with the first foster care payment. An application is not required
