- main residence in the Principality, Switzerland or in a Member State of the European Economic Area;
- not be personally entitled, on the basis of another professional or similar activity, to benefits having the same purpose under another legal family benefits scheme.

They are payable up to the age at which compulsory education ends if the child is registered with the Employment Service or up to the age of 21. Prenatal allowances are payable from the day on which the state of pregnancy is declared if the pregnant woman has undergone at least three medical examinations during her pregnancy and a post-natal examination within eight weeks of delivery and if the recipient is up to date with her contributions.
In the event of fraud, the recipient will be punished by the fine provided for in article 26, n°2, of the Criminal Code.
