The amount of the maximum income to which the apartment benefit is due depends on the individual personal situation, the rent and the age of the residents.
To be entitled to a benefit to the apartment you also cannot have big savings.

For single people it cannot exceed € 31.340 and for partners € 62.680.

The benefit can be obtained in two ways:

  1. Afterwards – at the end of the year or in the beginning of the year following.
    This method is safe for you because you know the income earned in the previous year in the following year. The deadline for submitting applications in this system is 31 March of the following year – i.e. for 2020 it will be 31 March 2021.
  2. In advance – Every month, based on the declared income, the insurance benefit is paid in advance.

This is a more risky method, if it turns out that you have earned more income than declared, then the benefit due to you will certainly decrease annually, so the part of the advance you were not entitled to will have to be returned to the Dutch tax office. Applications under this system can be submitted all year round.
