If you have adopted a child, you must meet the same conditions as for a biological child and are in principle entitled to the same benefits, with the exception of two parts of the childbirth allowance: the prenatal allowance and the childbirth allowance are reserved for women who are pregnant or have given birth.

Furthermore, for the granting of the postnatal allowance, the condition that the child must have been raised continuously in Luxembourg since birth is not required if the child was born abroad and adopted by a person domiciled in Luxembourg. In this case, the conditions relating to the medical examinations that should have been carried out before the child's arrival in Luxembourg are presumed to be fulfilled if the subsequent examinations have been carried out.
