Help for young adult sans

Help for young people of the legal year includes different benefits. It is both an independent help for 18 to 21 year olds as well as a continuation aid for over 21 segrades and aftercare.

As a rule, aid is only granted until the age of 21; in justified individual cases, it should be continued beyond that for a limited period of time.

The aid is provided when it is necessary because of the individual situation of the young person as a help for the development of personality and for the self-responsible way of life. Individual situations in which a benefit of the youth welfare according to Section 41 SGB VIII is required can result from a lack of competence to shape a self-responsible lifestyle. This can be caused by both individual impairments and social disadvantages.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the youth office of the district or the district-free city.

Which documents are required?

Documents may be required. Any documents to be submitted depend on the requirements of the individual case.

What are the fees?

The youth welfare agency is funding for education. This provides the services itself or assumes the costs agreed with the institutions.

In the case of assistance for young adult employees in stationary or semi-stationary form, cost contributions are generally levied in accordance with Section 91 SGB VIII. The payer decides on the use of the adult in individual cases.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Deadlines may have to be observed.

What else should I know?

For assistance to young adult guests, please contact the relevant body.
