Apply for municipal integration services


If you receive a citizen's allowance, you can take advantage of municipal integration benefits.

Your responsible job center can support you with debt counseling, psychosocial care, and addiction counseling. Your responsible job center can also support you in caring for relatives at home or looking after minor children or children with disabilities if these personal obligations prevent you from integrating into the workforce.

At the debt counseling service, you will receive help in sorting out your financial circumstances as well as debt repayment in order to improve the conditions for professional integration.

Psychosocial support is available if you need assistance with mental problems or crisis situations, so that your employability can be stabilized again.

Addiction counseling offers you support regardless of the type or severity of your addiction. This can be general counseling about addiction risks, addictive substances or addiction. In addition, you can be assisted with referrals to further help.

If you are taking care of children or caring for relatives at home, your responsible job center can organize third-party support so that you can pursue gainful employment.

You can claim municipal integration benefits if

  • you receive a citizen's allowance,
  • you need debt counseling, psychosocial counseling and addiction counseling, and/or
  • you demonstrably need support in the

care for minor children or children with disabilities or in the home care of relatives, and

  • this municipal benefit is necessary for integration into work.

Note that you do not have a legal right to municipal integration benefits. Your responsible job center will decide whether and to what extent you will receive assistance.

  • You must be receiving citizen's benefits.
