Description

Financial social assistance shall ensure that you receive assistance for subsistence if you cannot manage yourself through work or other income sources. Subsistence here means necessities such as food, rent, electricity and necessary clothing. Contributions will be the most common form of assistance. But you can also receive assistance in the form of loans or loan guarantees. This will primarily be relevant if it is assumed that you will be able to repay the loan.

Requrements/agreement

We will make an assessment of your actual needs. Conditions may be imposed for receiving the assistance. You may be required to document what other options you have tried:

  • If you have applied for housing benefit
  • If you have used your rights to any social security schemes
  • If you have been in contact with the Labour and Welfare Administration and taken up offers for employment or courses.
