What does this mean for your child benefit?
If you and your children or just your children move to the UK on or after 1 January 2021, any Dutch child benefit you are receiving for those children will stop. You cannot get Dutch child benefit for children born in the UK on or after 1 January 2021. However, if you work in the UK for an organisation recognised in the Netherlands as working in the public interest, you will qualify for Dutch child benefit.
When are you working in the public interest?
What does this mean for international postings to the UK?
An A1 certificate can still be issued on or after 1 January 2021. In principle, you will continue to be covered by the Dutch social insurance schemes. However, if you live in the UK you will not be insured under the Dutch healthcare schemes (Zvw and Wlz schemes) or the Dutch child benefit scheme. If you live in the Netherlands, you will normally be covered by all the Dutch social insurance schemes, including for healthcare and child benefit.
N.B. The free movement of services to and from the UK ended as from 1 January 2021. This means that you can only be posted to work there if you meet the UK’s own requirements for residence and work permits. An A1 certificate no longer guarantees you this right
