Restoration planning

The Allowance Restoration Organisation (UHT) has made a planning for the restoration process. In 2020, we focused on those parents in need of immediate assistance. In 2021 we have started compensating all affected parents with €30,000. In addition, we will provide full assessments to a continuously larger group of parents.

Read more about what to expect after you have applied for a reassessment.

Next pay out dates

We have planned the following pay out dates: 10 June and 22 June, 8 July .

Please note: it may take a few days before the payment is transferred into your account, depending on your bank.

Scheduled payments of €30,000

In December 2020, the government decided to pay €30,000 to all affected parents to speed up the process of restoration. Parents must register with us as 'affected parents'. Following registration, we perform a short assessment of the parent's eligibility for this scheme.

Target group Payout date(s)
Parents who already received compensation in 2020, but less than €30,000 (amount to be topped up to €30,000) January 2021
Parents who registered before 15 February 2021

By 1 May 2021.

We haven't been able to reach all parents by 1 May, and some parents  asked us to withhold the payment until a later date. We will pay out those parents as soon as possible after 1 May.

Parents who registered after 15 February 2021* Within 6 months of registration.

*We always contact parents by phone before we transfer the money. Parents can indicate that they would prefer to receive the amount at a later date.

Progress pay outs €30.000

Payments of €30.000 per pay out date: 28 January: 470; 17 February: 1230; 25 February: 1009; 9 March: 716; 24 March: 1375; 12 April: 974; 22 April 1105; 30 April 2897; other: 1367; 12 May: 1267; 25 May: 2.361; 10 June: 2.638; 22 June: 681; 8 July: 382; 28 July:413 Total: 18.899

* other: payments of €30.000 or more based on a full reassessment

We have started pay outs to parents that registered after 15 February 2021. Note that pay outs to this group have been added to the graphic above.

Schedule for full reassessments

A full reassessment involves establishing what went wrong with a parent's childcare benefit. During this full reassessment parents are assigned a personal case officer who will guide them through the process. Parents entitled to more than €30,000 will be paid the remaining amount.

This table shows the number of parents we expect to help with a full assessment in 2020 and 2021.

Period Minimum number of parents compensated * Maximum number of parents compensated *
November - December 2020 300 600
January - March 2021 1500 3000
April - June 2021 3500 7500
July - September 2021 5500 9500
October - December 2021 8300 12.300
