Are family benefits paid on a means-tested basis?

Verified 01 January 2024 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

In most cases, family benefits are subject to income conditions. That is, above a certain income threshold, the family is no longer entitled to it, or the amount of benefits paid is lower.

Means-tested benefits
Benefits reduced by income
Benefits without income conditions


So that the parents can benefit from the AEEH, the child shall not earn more than 55% the gross monthly minimum, or €971.80.
