Families receiving basic security benefits to receive laptops for distance learning

Families who receive basic security benefits after SGB II from the job center, the so-called Hartz IV, can receive up to 350 € per child to buy digital devices such as laptops or tablets and accessories. This current directive from the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs to the job centers applies retrospectively for January 1st, 2021. This way, the Ministry wants to prevent children from families in need to fall behind on their distance learning due to the corona pandemic. However, the claim for support for laptops or tablets only applies, if the necessary devices cannot be provided by the school. One has to apply for the support at the job center.
