In the context of the posting of employees, a distinction must be made between:
- posting to Luxembourg: in this case you remain subject to the social security system of your sending country while temporarily residing with your family in Luxembourg. There is no entitlement to family benefits for your children. The legal residence in Luxembourg does not meet the criteria of stability and permanency for the duration of the secondment, even if your children attend school in Luxembourg.
Please note: the situation is different if one of the parents starts working in Luxembourg and is affiliated to the Luxembourg social security system. A right to family allowances can be examinated depending on your country of residence.
- posting outside Luxembourg: if you remain affiliated to Luxembourg social security and your employer seconds you to another country, a right to family allowances exists depending on your family situation.
In order to examinate your right to family allowance, please submit y form.
