Sensory disability allowance decision: objection

Service Description

If you do not agree with a decision according to the Thüringer Sinnesbehindertengeldgesetz (ThürSinnbGG), you can file an objection against it. When the objection is filed, the so-called preliminary proceedings begin, in which the administration checks whether the objection is justified.

If the initial authority, in this case the social welfare offices of the counties and independent cities, comes to the conclusion that the objection is justified, it will grant it in full or, if necessary, in part. If the initial authority is of the opinion that the objection should be rejected, it passes the objection on to the competent objection authority, in this case the Thuringian State Administrative Office. The latter then makes a final decision on the appeal and issues the notice of appeal.

special notes for District-free City Erfurt

Sensory disability allowance according to the Thuringian Sensory Disability Allowance Act (ThürSinnbGG) and assistance for the blind according to Section 72 of the Social Code (SGB) XII are paid to blind, deaf and deaf-blind people to compensate for the additional expenses caused by their disability.

Sensory disability allowance is - in contrast to assistance for the blind - a benefit independent of income and assets.
