Family Benefits

You can apply for family benefits for your children. You are eligible for benefits for your own children and, subject to certain requirements, for stepchildren, foster children, siblings and grandchildren. Only one benefit can be paid per child. If you have multiple employers,  the one that pays you the highest salary is responsible for family benefits.
