Benefits for social participation in statutory accident insurance

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If your equal social participation is at risk as a result of an accident at work or on the way to work 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 disease impair 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 family, leisure, culture, sports and recreation, communication, housing and mobility.

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

When selecting your benefit, particular consideration will be given to your personal life situation, 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.

Social participation benefits are usually provided as benefits in kind. In exceptional cases, they can be provided as a cash benefit in the form of a personal budget. The aim of the personal budget is to promote your self-determination.


Process flow

Social participation benefits are automatically determined and provided as soon as there are indications that participation in social life is or will be endangered or restricted. No application is necessary.

This is often done as part of the rehabilitation management process. Your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will hold a personal discussion with you in order to be able to identify and correctly assess your individual needs in a timely and comprehensive manner.

You can also contact your Berufsgenossenschaft or Unfallkasse online or by mail.
