Apply for family benefits

You can apply for family benefits from the Children's Future Fund (CAE) online via This family allowance is a financial benefit that compensates for family expenses, i.e. the financial costs associated with the care and education of children.

For more information on who is concerned and how to apply, see our explanatory information page.

Modify your bank details

If you want your family benefits to be paid into a different account from the one you have provided, you can send a letter to the CAE stating your new account number and enclosing a bank account identification document (RIB).

You can also opt for the online procedure and change the bank details used by the CAE yourself.

Activate the eDelivery function for your family benefits

By activating the eDelivery function, you will receive certain official documents sent by the CAE in electronic format (called "eDocuments") in your private eSpace on

Currently, the documents falling under this service are:

  • the maternity allowance: letters informing you about the payment of postnatal, prenatal and birth grants;
  • family allowance: statements of the differential supplement and family allowance, information letter concerning the cessation of family allowance, etc.;
  • parental leave: income certificate, pay slip, request for supporting documents and individual statement.

To use this service, you must first activate the eDelivery function in the "My data" tab of your private eSpace on To do so:

Send documents to the CAE

You can send documents electronically to the CAE via the secure platform. Documents can be added at the end of the online procedure by clicking on the "Add a supporting document" button.

This online procedure does not require authentication, i.e. you do not need a LuxTrust product or an electronic identity card.

However, please note that sending documents electronically is only possible for:

  • already existing files; and
  • files for which a formal application to the CAE has already been made.

CAE reserves the right to request that the original supporting document be sent by post:

  • for certain specific documents; or
  • because the documents sent in PDF format were of poor quality.

To do so, you must first log on to with your LuxTrust product or electronic identity card on and select the "My data" tab. In the "Health/Social" section, click first on "Health insurance fund" and then on "Leave for family reasons".
