Apply for free funding SGB II


With the funding benefits of SGB III and SGB II, there are good opportunities for your job center to support you in your integration into work. In cases where these funding opportunities are not sufficient, the so-called Freie Förderung 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 are considered. You have no legal entitlement to the funding.

  • Please discuss your funding needs with your responsible integration specialist. Make an appointment as early as possible.
  • With your integration specialist, you will discuss whether support from the SGB II free funding 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.

You can receive benefits from the Free Funding SGB II if

  • You submit an application for this
  • You are an employable beneficiary within the meaning of SGB II
  • the other statutory funding for integration into work (SGB III or SGB II) alone is not sufficient to promote the same content in the same way.
  • The Freie Förderung SGB II does not circumvent or increase the other statutory subsidies for integration into work.
  • no other social service provider (for example, your municipality or health or pension insurance) is responsible for promoting it. This is the case, for example, with
    • Municipal integration services (e.g. childcare, debt counselling)
    • Language funding 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.

Benefits of the Free Funding can only be provided for the period after the application.

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