If you receive unemployment benefit II, you will conclude an integration agreement with the job centre. This is a written declaration that you sign together with your counsellor.
The agreement documents the extent to which the Job Centre supports you in your goal of finding a new job (e.g. by covering travel or application costs) and what contribution you make in return (e.g. when and how often you apply for vacancies). The duration and content of the agreement will be individually tailored to you and your professional goal.
The conclusion of an integration agreement is required by law.
