Service Description

The Federal Employment Agency is the rehabilitation provider if no other rehabilitation provider is responsible. This also applies to people with disabilities who are cared for by job centers. However, the special feature here is that there are shared responsibilities between the Employment Agency and the Job Center for the provision of services for occupational participation.

If the Federal Employment Agency is not itself obligated to do so, you as the measure provider must register all participants for social insurance and pay social insurance contributions during the measure. Specifically, this involves contributions to

  • health insurance,
  • pension insurance,
  • unemployment insurance, if applicable, and
  • nursing care insurance.

The employment agency or job center will reimburse you for the social insurance contributions paid, depending on your benefit responsibility.

You will receive the money monthly in arrears for the entire time the measure is running, as soon as you have submitted an application.

How high the reimbursement contributions can be depends on which measure for participation in working life it is and which personal requirements are fulfilled by the participant. For orientation, you can refer to the "Table of reimbursement contributions for vocational rehabilitation measures", which the Federal Employment Agency has agreed with the Central Association of Statutory Health Insurance (GKV SV).
