Benefits for education and participation; application

For children, adolescents and young adults, benefits for education and participation can be applied for by recipients of basic income support for jobseekers, social assistance, benefits under the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act, child supplement or housing benefit.

Description

Prerequisites

Eligible for benefits for education and participation are children, adolescents and young adults up to the age of 25 (except: benefits to support participation in the areas of culture, sport, games, socializing and leisure activities - age limit there: 18 years) who cannot cover their education and participation needs from their own income and assets or their family's own income and assets and who are therefore entitled to basic income support for jobseekers or social assistance (or are only not entitled because all needs are covered except for the need for education and participation), or are entitled to benefits under the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act or whose families receive child supplement or housing benefit.

We recommend that you contact the relevant office directly to check the specific requirements for the individual education and participation benefits.

Procedure

Basic benefits for jobseekers

If you have already submitted a "basic application" for basic benefits for jobseekers, it is currently not necessary to submit a separate application for education and participation benefits.

In this case, you can submit an informal application for education and participation benefits to the job center responsible for your place of residence or to the city or district office. The required attachments must be submitted.

If you have not yet received basic benefits for jobseekers, you must submit an application.

Benefits within the framework of social assistance

A prior application is required for all benefits of the education and participation package - with the exception of school requirements. Benefits for learning support do not have to be applied for separately in the period from July 1, 2021 to the end of December 31, 2023, but are already included in the application for benefits to secure subsistence. The application must be submitted to the social welfare agency responsible for your place of residence (district city or district office).

Benefits under the Asylum Seekers' Benefits Act (AsylbLG)

For all benefits of the education and participation package - with the exception of school requirements and learning support (see below) - a prior application is required. Benefits for learning support do not have to be applied for separately in the period from July 1, 2021 to the end of December 31, 2023, but are already included in the application for the granting of AsylbLG benefits. Applications must be submitted to the local authority responsible for your place of residence (independent city or district office).

Child supplement and housing benefit

If you receive child supplement or housing benefit, a separate application is still required for education and participation benefits. The application can be made informally, e.g. by e-mail.

Please ask the office responsible for you about the necessary forms.

Special notes

Please check with your local office for the required forms.

Deadlines

Claims for benefits under the education and participation package for recipients of basic benefits for jobseekers must be made within a current approval period.

In general, a prior application is required for all benefits of the education and participation package within the framework of social assistance and the enforcement of the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act - with the exception of school requirements and learning support.

Claims for benefits under the education and participation package for families with child supplement or housing benefit expire 12 months after the end of the calendar month in which they arose.
