The benefits for supplementary benefits correspond largely to the Arbeitslosengeld II.
Non-viable disabled persons with a “G” identification card can receive an additional benefit of 17 percent of the regular benefit if they are not entitled to any other supplementary needs because of disability. This does not apply to children up to 15 years of age.
Health insurance for social welfare
There is no obligation to insure social insurance in the statutory health, nursing or pension insurance.
However, recipients can apply for a contribution to health insurance and long-term care insurance, insofar as they can not afford them themselves because of their needs. The responsible health insurance company decides whether the conditions for entitlement to the claim are met. If it is not ensured that the subsidy is used, the payment can also be made directly to the health insurance company or the insurance company.
The grant is not granted retroactively. As a result, social money recipients should approach the health insurance fund as soon as possible on the grant and, if necessary, submit the application for contribution subsidy.
