Municipality of Cranendonck: applying for a personal budget (PGB)

Please note: you can only apply for a PGB if you live in the Netherlands and are registered with a municipality.

You can use a persoonsgebonden budget – PGB (personal budget) to buy care, help or support. 

There are 2 types of personal budget:

PGB via the Wet maatschappelijke ondersteuning – WMO (Social Support Act)

Do you receive Wmo support from your municipality? Do you want to arrange this help yourself? Then you can apply for a PGB from your municipality.

PGB through the Jeugdwet (Youth Act)

If your child receives support under the Jeugdwet, you can use a personal budget to arrange that help yourself as well. You can apply for it through your municipality’s jeugdhelp (youth assistance) service.

To be eligible for a PGB, you must meet a number of requirements:

  • You must draw up a PGB plan, in which you must specify what help you need.
  • The care providers that you select must meet quality requirements.
  • You must conclude an agreement with the care providers yourself.
  • You must be able to manage your PGB yourself. For example, you must conclude a contract with the care providers yourself. You must also direct them and keep records. You can also ask a PGB representative to do this for you.


You do not receive the money from your PGB yourself. The municipality pays your personal budget to the Sociale Verzekeringsbank – SVB (social insurance bank). You send your care providers’ invoices to the SVB. The SVB will then pay them. You must keep the invoices for your records.

You apply for a PGB via a [contact request](You request a PGB via a contact request to the Social Team.) to the Social Team.

Your municipality will inform you within 8 weeks of their decision.
