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.
Zorgtoeslag is a healthcare allowance for people with premium healthcare insurance in the Netherlands.

You may be eligible for the healthcare allowance if:
Your income for the 2021 tax year is less than €31,138 or €39,979 if you have allowance partner.

?What’s a Sofi number and do I need one?
A Sofi number is a unique personal number the Dutch tax and customs administration (Belastingdienst) uses to identify registered taxpayers. In order to apply for healthcare benefits, you and your allowance partner should have a Sofi number. If you don’t have one, we can arrange it for you.
?How much money can I get?
For the 2021 tax year the maximum amount you can get is €107 or €207 per month if you have an allowance partner.

For 2022 you should submit your application by 01/09/2023.
?What happens after my application has been submitted?
If the tax year has already ended you’ll get a final estimate stating whether you’ll get refund and if so, how much. The amount will be transferred to the account the tax office has for you.
If the tax year hasn’t ended, you’ll receive a provisional assessment stating the monthly refunds you’ll be receiving.
?How long will it take to get my allowance?
The average tax office processing time is 3-4 months from the date your application is received. Remember to provide the required information in a timely manner, otherwise delays could occur.
Sofi number application processing usually takes about 9 weeks.
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.
