Assistance in special situations: Authorisation

In addition to support for subsistence (general social assistance) and basic insurance in old age and in the event of disability, other social assistance can also be used as aid in special situations.

They benefit those seeking help in situations such as illness, disability or special social difficulties. This aid also benefits people who can still provide for their own livelihoods, but who are dependent on the help of the general public because of a special need situation. The decisive factor then is whether they can be expected to raise the funds from income and wealth.
Aid in special situations of life are, for example:
  • Help for health
  • Integration assistance for disabled people
  • Help for care
  • outpatient, semi-stationary and inpatient assistance to overcome particular social difficulties
