Assistance for subsistence: granting


The services are intended to meet the basic needs of human existence, such as food, clothing, personal hygiene, household goods, household energy, personal needs of daily life, as well as adequate accommodation and heating. The services – with the exception of accommodation and heating – are provided on a flat-rate basis in the form of standard rates. Individual aid is eligible only under special conditions.

In addition, additional requirements may arise due to

  • age and proof of the mark "G",
  • full reduction in earning capacity and proof of the mark "G",
  • Pregnancy
  • single parenting of children,
  • cost-intensive nutrition in case of illness and
  • Hot water with decentralised hot water supply

be recognised.

In addition, appropriate health and long-term care insurance contributions are eligible.

Assistance for subsistence is available to needy persons who are not entitled to basic security in old age and in the event of reduced earning capacity, unemployment benefit II and social benefit (i.e. are themselves capable of working within the meaning of the Second Book of the Social Code (SGB II) or live in a community of need with a person capable of working).

Social assistance is a subordinate benefit given to people who cannot help themselves. Claims against third parties – in particular maintenance claims – are generally to be pursued with priority. If they are not fulfilled in time and social assistance must therefore take place, the rights are transferred under certain conditions to the competent authority, which can then claim them in turn.

Further information and advice can be obtained from the responsible office.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district and the independent city where you have your residence.

Requirements

Assistance for subsistence is available to persons in need who are unable or unable to meet their necessary livelihood from income and assets and who do not receive the necessary benefits from others. In principle, the assistance begins with the acknowledgement of the social assistance provider that the conditions for the benefit are met.

  • Proof of expenses: rental contract or household charges (each with year of construction and size of the apartment), receipts for gas / water / electricity bills, insurance (policies and contribution invoices), such as household contents, liability, life, death insurance, possibly contribution invoices for voluntary health and long-term care insurance, etc.
  • Income receipts, e.g. pension notice, unemployment benefit II notice, housing benefit notice, pay slip, etc.
  • Proof of assets: account statements of the last three months, savings books, fixed-term deposit accounts, securities accounts, land register extract, etc.

What are the fees?

Fee: free of charge

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

In principle, assistance for subsistence begins on a daily basis with the acknowledgement of the social assistance institution that the conditions for the benefits are met. For the rest, please contact the competent authority.
