Apply for free funding SGB II


With the funding provided by SGB III and SGB II, there are good ways in which your job centre can support you in your integration into work. In cases where these funding opportunities are not sufficient, the so-called free funding SGB II can offer additional support.

Whether support from the Free Funding SGB II is necessary and possible in your specific situation and, if so, how it can be designed, is decided by your responsible integration specialist. In principle, both financial benefits and participation in measures can be considered. They have no legal claim to the funding.

You can receive benefits from the Free Funding SGB II if

  • You submit an application for this
  • You are entitled to benefits or beneficiaries within the meaning of SGB II who are capable of work
  • the other statutory subsidies for integration into work (SGB III or SGB II) alone are not sufficient to promote the same content in the same way.
  • the free funding SGB II does not circumvent or increase the other statutory support benefits for integration into work.
  • no other social service provider (e.g. your municipality or health or pension insurance) is responsible for the funding. This is the case, for example, with
    • municipal integration services (e.g. childcare, debt counselling)
    • Language support from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees
    • Child and youth welfare services
    • Health or pension insurance benefits

Please clarify which documents are specifically required with your responsible integration specialist.

There is no deadline. Free funding benefits can only be provided for the period after the application has been submitted.

If all the required documents are complete, your application will usually be processed within a few days.

  • Contradiction
  • In the event of an unsuccessful objection, it is possible to bring an action before the Social Court

  • Please discuss your funding needs with your responsible integration specialist. To do this, make an appointment as early as possible.
  • You will discuss with your integration specialist whether support from the Free Funding SGB II is necessary and possible for your integration into the labour market or whether other support services can be used first.
  • If a benefit from the Free Funding SGB II is possible, your integration specialist will discuss with you what the further procedure looks like and what online options are available for the application.
