June 08, 2022

From June 1, 2022, protection seekers from Ukraine will be entitled to benefits from the job center under Social Code Book II (SGB II). They will thus receive more comprehensive assistance to ensure their livelihood, health care and professional integration.

For the protection seekers from Ukraine, the transition from the Asylum Seekers' Benefits Act (AsylbLG) to the Social Code Book II is to be made as simple as possible.

All persons who until June 1, 2022 are already registered and have a residence document (fiction, electronic residence title § 24 AufenthG), can therefore directly contact the Jobcenter Dortmund and find out about the new benefit and make an application.

June 2022 enter or make a new application for social benefits, must - unlike in the past - for the granting of benefits to go through a registration and registration and have a valid residence document (fiction or residence title under § 24 Residence Act).
