Service Description

The determination of a degree of disability (GdB) is a prerequisite for the issue of a severely disabled person's ID card. During the assessment, the overall effects of one or more disabilities are determined.

In particular, the degree of disability and other health characteristics are entered on the severely disabled person's pass.

The ID card with the respective characteristic is a prerequisite for claiming compensation for disadvantages, such as free travel on local public transport.
