Zorgtoeslag (Healthcare Allowance) Application

Product Image

If you live and work in the Netherlands, you’re legally obliged to have the standard health insurance called Zorgverzekering. What you may not be aware of is that you could be entitled to claim the health insurance allowance (Zorgtoeslag) to help cover part of your insurance costs. Taxback.com can check if you’re eligible and claim this allowance on your behalf.

You might be eligible to claim the health insurance allowance if the following apply:

  • You have Dutch health insurance
  • You have Dutch, EU, Liechtenstein, Norwegian, Icelandic or Swiss nationality or have a valid residence permit
  • Your personal/joint income doesn’t exceed a certain maximum amount
  • Your personal/joint amount of savings and investments doesn’t exceed a certain level

If you’re married, you should claim your healthcare benefits together with your spouse. For more information on Dutch healthcare benefits– check out our FAQs.

Useful Zorgtoeslag Facts

  • It’s FREE to find out what approximate allowance you might receive.
  • The amount of healthcare allowance you can receive depends on your (joint) income.
  • Children aren’t eligible for Zorgtoeslag as they’re insured for free until the age of 18.
  • If you or your spouse live abroad and receive income from the Netherlands you could still be entitled to healthcare benefits.
  • If you worked temporarily in the Netherlands for a Dutch employer you should have paid for health insurance as well and can get the healthcare allowance.
  • You can apply for the current year and receive the healthcare allowance monthly.

    This was very easy to understand and fast process. It was great whenever I didn't understand something or had an issue, I could chat to an agent at any time and the issue would be resolved fast.

    I am grateful that Taxback team was very responsive and kind during the whole process which took more than a year. They explained me everything in detail and finally I received my taxes. Team is great and I recommend this service for every foreigner who does not know how to receive their taxes on their own.

    Awesome experience from the very beginning till the end.. I left New Zealand 3 years ago and didn't even know that I still be able to claim my tax back from that time till I stumbled across one of their ads on Google.. So I just gave it a try and it couldn't have been any better.. Even I didn't had any Payslips or even a Copy of my Visa anymore, they got everything sorted for me in less than a month.. Very responsive with Emails and live chat.. They even have a live tracker where they update you with all the details you need..Highly recommended.. Thanks a lot Guys

    Almost perfect, maybe a little slowly like a process, but still correct.

    Really easy process and no issues with the refund process. Kept up to date with the process all the way. The expected return estimate that they gave was the amount that they refunded.
