zorgtoeslag (health insurance benefit)

If you have a job in the Netherlands you have to get Dutch basic health insurance. Fortunately, the Dutch government offers those students that also hold down jobs a monthly subsidy towards their health insurance bill. This makes it a lot cheaper! If your yearly salary does not exceed €31,138 and you have already taken out basic health insurance in the Netherlands then you can apply for zorgtoeslag on the belastingdienst website.

If you live outside the Netherlands, you will have to follow a different procedure. Check out our page to find out more.
