Basic insurance in old age and in the event of disability (social assistance)

If your income in old age (pension) or in full disability is not sufficient for the necessary living wage, you can apply for the basic insurance.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the corresponding social office of the district and with the district-free city.

Which documents are required?

Documents may be required. Please contact the appropriate body.

What are the fees?

There are no charges.

Fee: free of charge
Payment in advance: No

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The benefits of the basic insurance start with the application. There are no additional payments for periods prior to the application.

The basic security benefit is regularly approved for 12 calendar months and then reviewed.

If the personal or financial circumstances change during the authorisation period, the changes must be notified. Increased benefits shall be paid at the earliest from the first of the month in which the notification of the amendment was made. That is why it is important to notify changes, such as a rent increase, immediately.

What else should I know?
