Apply for integration assistance for people with disabilities

Description

The task of integration assistance for people with disabilities is to enable beneficiaries to live an individual lifestyle and to promote participation in the life of society. The focus is on human dignity.

In particular, integration assistance benefits include:

  • medical rehabilitation services,
  • benefits for participation in working life, in particular services in the work area of recognised workshops for disabled people,
  • educational participation services, in particular assistance for schooling in the context of compulsory education, school-based vocational training and higher education,
  • Social participation services, including services for self-determined and independent management of everyday life, medical education services for children who have not yet been trained,

Before you can benefit from integration assistance benefits, all other social security benefits (e.g. health insurance, pension insurance, employment agency, accident insurance) must first be exhausted.

Do you have a disability or are you at risk of a disability? Then you can apply for integration assistance in order to participate in social life. The same applies to the legal representatives of the persons concerned.

An application for integration assistance must be submitted to the district or the district-free city.

However, they can also submit the application to their municipality or to a social security provider. They are obliged to forward the application to the competent authority.

You are entitled to integration assistance if you

  • not only have a temporary disability or are at risk of a disability
  • do not have sufficient income or assets
  • are not entitled to a priority benefit from third parties (e.g. from the pension insurance).

Depending on the facts, you will need

  • an application,
  • Proof of disability,
  • Proof of income and wealth.

Further information on the required documents can be obtained from the responsible social office of the district/district-free city.

There are no fees.

The benefit will be paid at the earliest from the month in which you submitted the application.

It is helpful for speeding up the processing of applications for integration assistance if the existence of a disability has already been established in advance.
