Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If your equal social participation is at risk as a result of an accident at work or commuting accident or a recognized occupational disease, you can receive benefits for social participation.

If your equal social participation is at risk as a result of an accident at work or commuting accident or a recognized occupational disease, you can receive benefits for social participation.

Such a risk exists if the physical, mental or sensory impairments caused by the accident or occupational illness affect your previous participation.

The aim of social participation benefits is to promote your self-determined participation at an early stage and by all appropriate means so that you can lead as independent, autonomous and responsible a social life as possible.

Social participation services include services for the areas of family, leisure, culture, sport and recreation, communication, housing and mobility.

You select suitable and necessary measures together with your employer's liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.

When selecting your benefits, particular consideration is given to your personal circumstances, your age and gender, your family circumstances, your religious and ideological needs and, in the case of mothers, fathers and children with disabilities, their special needs.

Benefits for social participation are generally provided as benefits in kind. In exceptional cases, they can be provided as a cash benefit in the form of a personal budget. The personal budget is intended to promote your self-determination.


Process flow

Benefits for social participation are automatically determined and provided as soon as there are indications that there is or will be a risk to or restriction of participation in social life. No application is necessary.

This is often done as part of rehabilitation management. Your employer's liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will hold a personal meeting with you to identify and correctly assess your individual needs in good time.

You can also contact your social accident insurance institution online or by post.
