This study focuses on the question of how the financial situation of families changed between 2010 and 2015 and what contribution monetary family policy transfer payments and tax measures for family support have made to this.

The article consists of three central parts: 1. description of family policy instruments in Austria, 2. distribution analysis of family policy benefits, 3. financing of family policy benefits and discussion of the specific role of the FLAF.
