Request reimbursement of costs for trial employment of people with disabilities from the job center


People with disabilities or severely handicapped people should be given the opportunity to prove their strengths and abilities on the labor market. With a trial employment, you as a company can facilitate the entry or re-entry into working life. During this time, all parties involved can try out working together in a temporary employment relationship for a period of up to 3 months.

The costs you incur in the course of this trial employment can be reimbursed by the Federal Employment Agency. These usually include

  • Wage/salary costs, including the employer's social security contributions, and
  • other benefits based on statutory or collectively agreed regulations
  • Allocations and contributions to the employers' liability insurance association

The Job Center in whose district the person you want to employ on a trial basis has his or her main residence or habitual abode at the start of the trial employment relationship is responsible. The job center is also responsible for existing employment relationships if the person you want to employ on a trial basis receives supplementary benefits under Book II of the Social Code (SGB II).

  • The person you would like to employ on a trial basis is
    • person with disabilities or
    • severely disabled or
    • equal to severely disabled persons.
  • The trial employment
    • can improve the possibility of participation in working life or
    • results in the person being able to participate fully and permanently in working life.
  • Temporary employment contract
  • If applicable, a severely disabled person's ID card and/or a certificate of equality
  • Registration for social security

Be sure to submit the request before the trial employment begins.

Appeal to the job center that issued the decision. Further information on how to lodge an appeal can be found in the respective notice.
