Changes to your situation can affect the amount of your healthcare benefit, so it is important to report any changes as soon as possible. You can do this online via ‘Mijn toeslagen’ or by calling the international tax information line.
What changes affect your healthcare benefit?
- Changes to your income
- Changes to your assets
- Changes to who you live with or share a house with
- Getting married or entering into a registered partnership
- Getting divorced.
Log in to ‘Mijn toeslagen’ (information in Dutch) and click ‘Wijziging doorgeven’. Then select the information you want to update.
You will need a DigiD username and password to log in. If you don’t already have DigiD, find out how to apply for DigiD from abroad.
Change of address
If you live abroad and you are moving to a new address abroad, you can submit a change of address online using the Moving Abroad service portal (information in Dutch). You will need a DigiD username and password for this.
You can also report the change of address to the Tax and Customs Administration using the Notification of change of address abroad form (information in Dutch).
New bank account number
If you have a foreign bank account with an IBAN (international bank account number), you can provide your new bank account number via ‘Mijn toeslagen’.
If your bank account does not have an IBAN, you can send a letter to the Tax and Customs Administration (information in Dutch) to notify them of your new account number.
After reporting a change
After you have reported a change, the Tax and Customs Administration will recalculate your healthcare benefit. The amount could change or you could no longer be entitled to the benefit. You will get a message about any changes in your digital mailbox on ‘Mijn toeslagen’ (information in Dutch) and your Message Box on MijnOverheid. You will also get a letter by post.
Stopping healthcare benefit payments
If you no longer have Dutch health insurance, you will need to stop your healthcare benefit payments. You can do this via ‘Mijn toeslagen’ (information in Dutch) or by calling the international tax information line.
Reporting changes to other government organisations
If there is a change in your situation, you may have to report this to several Dutch government organisations.
