Apply for a personal budget for people with disabilities Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The "Personal Budget" is support for people with disabilities in the form of cash payments or, in exceptional cases, vouchers. With this personal budget, you can "purchase" your own expenses for your help needs. As a result, you no longer have to submit an application for each physical or service. The personal budget is tailored to your needs and can be used for health insurance, social care insurance, accident insurance and social assistance. You have a legal right to the Personal Budget if you submit an application and meet the requirements.

In addition to the application, you must submit some evidence and documents. However, these depend on your individual facts. When you submit an application, the competent authority will inform you of the documents you have yet to submit.


You can submit an informal application to a service provider. However, many carriers also offer forms that you can use.

Preconditions
They have a disability or are at risk of disability (the severity of the disability is irrelevant).

Hints
Further information can be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.
You must first submit an application. The application is always voluntary. A single rehab application is sufficient to initiate a comprehensive personal budget review and decision-making process, even if another service provider is responsible. It will then discuss with the applicant what services can be provided in the form of the personal budget. If necessary, representatives of the service providers involved will be involved. Disabled person can bring a person of his or her trust. The person with disabilities will then receive a communication containing the details of the personal budget. If he does not agree with the determination of the personal budget, he has the opportunity to appeal to the service provider who issued the decision. At intervals of at least two years, the need for assistance must be assessed in a further needs assessment procedure and, if necessary, adapted.
