Since January of this year, the citizen’s income has replaced the previous unemployment benefit II (Hartz IV). Since then, the citizen’s income can be applied for digitally, but also still in writing by mail at the responsible job center. Detailed information on the new regulations can be found at the German Federal Employment Agency under the link https://www.arbeitsagentur.de/arbeitslos-arbeit-finden/buergergeld/buergergeld-beantragen. There you can read, for example, what the requirements for the citizen’s income are and how much financial support is available. On this page, there is a button “Apply for Citizen’s Income” to sign up or register for the electronic service. In addition, the Bürgergeld application for the written procedure can be downloaded, as well as a brochure explaining the most important terms relating to Bürgergeld.
