The child benefit is a social security benefit in respect of which competence has been transferred from the Federal State to the Belgian Federated Flemish and French-speaking entities. The Flemish Government has recently issued a concept note in which she announces to reform this benefit. The main changes are: the equalization of the child benefit for every child and the introduction of a social supplement for children from disadvantaged families. The intention of the Flemish government is to have these reforms into force on the 1st of January 2019. New legislation has to be adopted to meet this goal.
