The cost-of-living benefit must be applied for before 30 September 2018

Upon application and in certain conditions, the National Solidarity Fund (Fonds national de solidarité – FNS) can grant a cost-of-living benefit to low-income households.

Applications must be submitted to the FNS by post before 30 September 2018. The postmark serves as proof of the date. Applications submitted after 30 September of the current year will not be considered.

As a reminder, the benefit is aimed at persons who:

  • have an authorisation to stay in Luxembourg;
  • are listed on the main register of the National Registry of Natural Persons;
  • also effectively live in their place of usual residence;
  • have lived in Luxembourg for a reference period of 12 continuous months prior to the month in which they submitted the application for benefits to the FNS;
  • at the time of submitting the application, have an annual income below the set limits.
Please note: the benefit can only be applied for once a year. If you have already applied for the benefit in the course of 2018, you do not need to apply for it again.

You can find more information about the cost-of-living benefit on our information page.
