Assistance in special circumstances (social assistance)

Service Description

In addition to assistance for subsistence (general social assistance) and basic security in old age and in the event of reduced earning capacity, other social assistance benefits may also be claimed as assistance in special circumstances.

They benefit those seeking help in situations such as illness, disability or special social difficulties. This assistance is also available to people who are still able to provide for themselves, but who are dependent on help from the general public due to a special need situation. The decisive factor is whether they can reasonably be expected to raise the funds from their income and assets.

Assistance in special life situations are, for example:

  • Health assistance
  • Integration assistance for disabled persons
  • Help with nursing care
  • outpatient, day-care and inpatient help to overcome special social difficulties.
