Notes for EU citizens

Bürgergeld and social benefits for EU citizens in Germany

If you are a citizen of an EU country and want to apply for Bürgergeld or other social benefits in Germany, there are certain conditions that you must observe. During the application process, the following points are checked:

  • When did you come to Germany?
  • How long have you been in Germany?
  • Have you worked or are you still working since you arrived here?

If you meet these requirements, you will receive the applications for Bürgergeld and we will help you with the application process. We also process your applications for citizen's benefits.

When it comes to job placement, we record your school knowledge and the professional experience you have acquired in your home country.

Our staff will advise you on the recognition of your educational and professional qualifications that you have acquired abroad. In addition, we will support you in attending German courses and other measures to integrate you into the German labor market. We will also provide you with job offers and help you with placement as an applicant.

The Jobcenter Dortmund will be happy to answer any further questions you may have. Our IP/EU team is specialized and will be happy to help you.
