The family supplement is a benefit paid under income conditions to persons with at least 3 children over 3 years of age. There is no process to get it. The amount varies according to the level of income.

Conditions related to children

You must have at least 3 dependent children, over 3 and under 21 years of age.

Conditions of resources

Your resources must not exceed an amount determined according to your family situation. It's the categorical net income of 2021 which is taken into account for 2023.

There are 2 revenues in the couple when each of the 2 receives professional income for an amount at least equal (in 2022) to €5,594

If resources are only slightly above the resource cap, you receive a differential allocation.

Please note

if you live in a overseas department (Dom), the conditions of award and the amount of the family supplement are different. Information is available on the Caf site.

You do not have to take any action, because the tax authorities automatically transmit the information to the family allowance fund (Caf) or to the agricultural social mutual society (MSA).

The declaration must be made only if such transmission has not been made.
