Apply for free funding SGB II


With the funding of SGB III and SGB II, there are good opportunities open as to how your job center can support you in your integration into work. In cases where these funding opportunities are not sufficient, the so-called Free Promotion SGB II can offer additional support.

Whether support from the Free Promotion 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 eligible. They have no legal claim to the funding.

If, in addition to the other statutory support benefits for integration into work, you have even more extensive, labour market-related support needs, you can apply for benefits of the so-called Free Promotion SGB II in individual cases.

  • Please discuss your funding needs with your responsible integration specialist. Make an appointment as early as possible.
  • You will discuss with your integration specialist whether support from the Free Promotion SGB II 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 of the Free Promotion SGB II if

  • You submit an application for this
  • You are a beneficiary of the right to benefits within the meaning of SGB II
  • the other statutory subsidies for integration into work (SGB III or SGB II) alone are not sufficient to promote the same content in the same way.
  • the Free Promotion SGB II does not circumvent or increase the other statutory subsidies for integration into work.
  • no other social security institution (for example, your municipality or health or pension insurance) is responsible for the promotion. This is the case, for example, with
    • municipal integration benefits (e.g. childcare, debt counselling)
    • Language support from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees
    • Services of child and youth welfare
    • Sickness or pension insurance benefits

Which documents are specifically required, please clarify with your responsible integration specialist.

Services of the free promotion can only be provided for the time after the application.

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