Applying for a personal budget (PGB)
If you need care or nursing due to illness or disability, or you need help at home, you may be eligible for a personal budget (persoonsgebonden budget – PGB). You can use this money to pay for your care needs. For example, you can hire someone to help you with your shopping or clean your house, or you can arrange for youth care services for your child.
There are 4 types of care for which you can apply for a PGB:
- Support at home: if you need support, transport or help at home.
- Youth care services: if you need help for someone under the age of 18.
- Heavy, long-term care needs: if you need 24-hour care every day.
- Nursing and personal care: if you need personal care or nursing at home.
Eligibility to receive a PGB depends on the care you need.
You can apply to the Zorgkantoor (care office), your healthcare insurer or the municipality for a PGB. The type of care you need will determine which organisation you approach to apply for a PGB (in Dutch).
You can receive several PGB's at the same time. For example, if you or your child has an indication for support at home and nursing. Then you will receive one PGB from the municipality and one from the healthcare insurer.
