Apply for subsidies for the training and employment of people with disabilities at the Jobcenter


Training allowances for people with disabilities and severely disabled persons or persons with an equivalent disability.

As a rule, they receive the training allowance continuously for the entire duration of the training or further education.

The amount of the subsidy is determined individually and depends on the type and severity of the disabilities as well as the effect of the disabilities on the training or further education.

The allowance is paid monthly and amounts to up to 60 percent, and in the case of severely disabled persons or persons with equivalent disabilities up to 80 percent, of the monthly training allowance for the last year of training or continuing education, in each case including the employer's flat-rate share of the overall social security contribution. In justified exceptional cases, subsidies can be provided up to the amount of the training remuneration for the last year of training or further training.

All company measures that involve and focus on the vocational training or qualification of people with disabilities or severely disabled people are eligible for funding. This also includes, for example, dual courses of study if they include a vocational qualification in accordance with the Vocational Training Act.

Your job center decides whether you can receive the subsidy for training allowance. There is no legal entitlement to a subsidy.

Integration allowance following initial or further training

If you employ a severely disabled person after a training or further training program that has been funded and completed with a training subsidy, the job center can pay you an integration subsidy.

The integration subsidy amounts to up to 70 percent of the wage and can be paid for 1 year.

However, the specific amount is at the discretion of the job center.

The job center responsible is the one in whose district the person eligible for benefits has his or her habitual residence. The job center is also responsible for existing employment relationships if supplementary benefits are granted under Book II of the Social Code.
