Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The following groups of people can receive a one-off payment of EUR 200.00 to relieve them of the increased energy costs:

  • Students and pupils in vocational school classes whose attendance requires a vocational qualification
  • Pupils in vocational school classes and technical school classes that provide a vocational qualification in a training course lasting at least two years
  • Pupils in comparable courses of education

If you belong to one of these groups, you can apply for the one-off payment online.

In order to support students with the increased costs for heating, electricity and food, the Bundestag has passed the law on one-off payments (energy price lump sum) for students and technical school pupils.

In addition, the state of Schleswig-Holstein has decreed an extension of the group of eligible applicants to include persons with permanent residence in Schleswig-Holstein who are enrolled or registered at educational institutions outside Germany in other European countries (EU, EEA and Switzerland). The energy price lump sum of 200 euros must be applied for.

There are two different methods for this. Detailed information can be found here:
