Financing the additional needs of disabled persons

From January 2005, the assumption of disability-related additional costs, which were previously financed under certain conditions by benefits under the Federal Social Welfare Act (BSHG), will be regulated in accordance with the provisions of the Social Security Codes II and XII.

The associated changes affect, among others, students with disabilities who are dependent on the assumption of the costs of the disability-related additional requirements. In individual cases, it is recommended to seek advice from the social counselling service.
