Yes, because Arbeitslosengeld II and social provisions are designed as demand-oriented and need-dependent social benefits, which are paid only if life support can not be secured in any other way. Therefore, the individual’s own income and that of the partner are taken into account when determining the needs. However, different amounts of income are released from the credit to the Arbeitslosengeld II. This ensures that those who earn income from employment have more financial resources available than persons who cover their livelihood solely through Arbeitslosengeld II.
