Apply for reimbursement of costs for trial employment of people with disabilities


People with disabilities or severely disabled people should have the opportunity to prove their strengths and skills on the labour market. With a trial employment, you as a company can facilitate the entry or re-entry into professional life. During this time, all parties involved can try out the cooperation in a fixed-term employment relationship for a period of up to 3 months.

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

  • wage costs, including employers' social security contributions, and
  • other benefits based on statutory or collective agreement regulations
  • Levies and contributions to the employers' liability insurance association

You can submit the application in person, by telephone or in writing.

  • Contact your contact person in the Employer Service of the Employment Agency or the Job Centre. If known, you can also contact the responsible contact person of the person with disabilities concerned in the Vocational Rehabilitation and Participation team of the Employment Agency or the responsible contact persons in the job centre.
  • You must submit the application before taking up temporary trial employment.
  • You can submit the application informally to the Employment Agency or the Job Centre in whose district the person you want to employ on a trial basis lives.
  • The responsible employment agency or job centre will examine your application and, if necessary, send you further documents.
  • You will receive a notification as to whether your application has been approved as well as documents for the final settlement.

Responsible is the office of the Federal Employment Agency or the job center in whose district you have your main residence or habitual residence at the beginning of the trial employment relationship. The job centre is also responsible for existing employment relationships if you receive additional benefits in accordance with the Second Book of the Social Code.

The person you want to hire on a trial basis is

  • disabled or
  • severely disabled or
  • severely disabled people on an equal footing.

Trial employment

  • can improve the possibility of participation in working life, or
  • leads to the fact that the person can participate fully and permanently in working life.
  • Fixed-term trial employment contract
  • Severely disabled person's card and/or equality notice
  • Registration for social security

Make sure that you must submit the application before the trial employment begins.
