Apply for one-time benefits

Service Description

If you have no or only a small income or assets at your disposal, you can apply for Bürgergeld for one-time benefits in special situations. It does not matter whether or not you have been receiving money from the Jobcenter up to now. Situations in which you may be entitled to one-time benefits are, for example, if:

  • You are expecting a child and therefore need new equipment and clothing.
  • You need furniture or household appliances for the first time or have to buy new ones after a divorce.
  • You need orthopedic shoes or have them repaired.
  • You need to have therapeutic devices or equipment repaired.

In these and other cases, you can apply for either a cash benefit or a benefit in kind (vouchers) from the Jobcenter.

Contact your regional Jobcenter before submitting an application. In many cases, the Jobcenter uses its own application form; sometimes an informal application with a statement of reasons is sufficient. The amount of one-time benefits may vary from region to region.
