The benefit system date of the First World War, when manufacturers decided to withdraw a certain percentage of workers\' wages for redistribution to families (more than four children). Originally this system was designed to boost the birth rate. Soon, their ideas grew and enabled the introduction of family allowance. It was during the inter-war, law of August 4, 1930, this system was generalized: each employee was compelled to join a compensation fund. This law set in motion many reforms, but it was not until the Act of June 10, 1937 to see the creation of a self-similar mandatory.
In 1945, the building of a welfare state, organizing the services of the country\'s aid, formalized system the social security agencies allowances and they centralized and the organization of the compensation fund was revised. Currently, the state organized the distribution of allowances according to various specialized agencies. Employees were turning to ONAFTS (National Family Allowances for employees) or the Family Allowances Fund of their employers, and self-directed to the NISSE (National Social Insurance Institute for Self-Employed) or affiliate with a social Insurance Fund of their choice. We cannot say that the system has largely evolved: the benefits are paid to families following a series of conditions relating the number of children and age, as well as the professional activity of parents and the child.

[...] On one hand, I find it reassuring . or less alarming than what you can hear in the press: agree we have a crisis of our political system, but this crisis is part of a continuing evolution of our country. I do not really understand the issues of this crisis, but in talking with my surroundings, I realized that this was essentially a growing need for autonomy on the side of the Flemings. They work to reduce the federal jurisdiction for the benefit of communities. [...]
[...] There is not only the problematic case of the Brussels Region presented above, but any consideration of the diversity of family context: Treating the case of divorced families and living in two different regions, or the case of blended families? I would conclude by saying that reforming the benefit system seems to announce more problems than it solves.
