Right to increased allowance?

Right to increased allowance?

About 30 to 35,000 people in the Brussels Capital Region could be entitled to the increased allowance but do not receive it. If you think you meet the conditions, contact the Public Welfare Centre (CPAS-OCMW) for help.

This Right to Increased Allowance supports low-income families to access:

  • healthcare
  • social water and energy tariffs
  • preferential telecommunications tariffs in the future

However, many people do not get the increased allowance due to a lack of knowledge of the social rights linked to this status.

The CPAS and the health insurance funds are now working together to support families in Brussels. Need help? Then contact:
