Hi all!I recently moved to Lux and as local maternity benefits system totally differs from the system of previous country of living, I am wondering about how it works here. I already found terms of benefits for employed moms, but for unemployed it only says:  " payments are given 8 weeks before and 8 weeks after birth".  Is the amount of the payment fixed? If yes, does it depend from which criteria? (income of the family, etc?) What  the approxmate ranges of amounts are?Thank you in advance

Thanks

I offer an old Bugaboo Frog Stroller&Pram Combination for 170€. Only personal pick up in Strassen - you can see it before you buy and I don't have to look for a big box. :-) It is ready to be used again, but old (and worn after 4 children), that's why the price would be is so low.  Bought in Netherlands, it has their "national colours" - orange and dark blue/or violet, if you wish. The blue/violet colour, which is inside, and has faded away considerably. Otherwise, it shows proper functions. The material has an additional impregnation against rain, I actually didn't use the plastic raincoat at all. The hand-brake of this model is not very strong, one shall park the stroller safely. I also hand you over the Bugaboo accessories: - a plastic raincoat (I've never used), - a sunshade (or umbrella), - a basic summer inlay and - a perfectly warm and cosy warm winter inlay (just great). About three years ago, we changed one wheel and a brake. Both are Bugaboo original spare-parts. When we asked Bugaboo, where we can buy a new brake cable, they sent it to us from UK to Luxembourg for free. :-) If we had one more child, we would probably change the front wheels, because the springs are quite old and might not be reliable for a long time more. Suitable for a child right from the birth (0% angel for newborns) up to 2-3 years. Very light, if you consider getting into the bus with it, and very space-saving when folded in the car too. I have been very happy using it.

Hi, I was wondering if one can still receive child benefits from luxembourg if they reside in a border city (arlon/trier/thionville etc) and Non-european, or will they immediately stop your child benefits if you change your address or leave the school. Thanks,

Whilst I am on my soapbox, would someone tell me why other parents (yes I do have kids) allow thier 'Little Darlings' to run around like maniacs in a restaurant, annoying everyone else in the restaurant whilst they ignre them and get their meal in peace.  I have just walked out of a restaurant with a friend this lunchtime due to this and it is not the first time it has happened.  If you can't be bothered to discipline your kids don't kick off when someone else does.
