Financial aid for families: Apply for child benefit no later than three months after moving in.  Anyone wishing to receive Baukindergeld must submit an application no later than three months after moving in.

Berlin (dpa / tmn) – Families and single parents must submit applications for the new Baukindergeld no later than three months after moving in on the KfW grant portal. According to the KfW banking group, the age and place of residence of the children at the time of the application are important.

Every child for whom funding is requested must live at home and be under 18 years of age. There is no funding for children born after the application has been submitted.

For the application you have to register in the KfW grant portal and upload the necessary evidence. On the one hand, these are the income tax assessments of the applicant and the spouse, civil partner or partner from a marriage-like community of the penultimate and penultimate year – i.e. for applications in 2019 those from 2016 and 2017. On the other hand, a confirmation of registration and the current land register extract are required. KfW recommends scanning or photographing these documents in high quality.

But: According to the KfW grant portal, the necessary documents can probably only be uploaded from the end of March 2019 (as of December 18). Applicants will then receive an email notification and will then have three months to submit their documents.

Before the payment can be made, applicants must also identify themselves, either via a video call with an employee of a service provider commissioned by KfW or via the Postident procedure in a Deutsche Post branch.
