Number of children
Please indicate the number of children in your household for whom you are entitled to child benefit or child allowances.
You are entitled to child benefit for your biological and adopted children. For foster children, you can apply for child benefit if they live in your family and have a long-term relationship with your family and if they are supervised, cared for and educated by you.
If your child is already of legal age, he or she can only be included in your tax return under certain conditions, e. g. if he or she is unemployed (up to 21 years of age) or in vocational training (up to 25 years of age).
Disabled children may also be considered beyond the age of 25 years if the disability occurs before the age of 25.
