Citizens’ allowance: These changes will apply from January
From January, the new citizen’s income is to replace the previous Hartz IV system. The Federal Cabinet launched the draft law by Federal Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD) on Wednesday. Among other things, this provides for a significant increase in the standard rates and better opportunities for additional income. Additional benefits such as a “further training allowance” are also intended to create additional incentives to seek employment. In addition, there should be more help for qualification and further training.

The standard rate for single adults increases by EUR 53 from EUR 449 to EUR 502. The previous sanctions will be mitigated: Anyone who repeatedly fails to keep an appointment at the job center can be subject to a ten percent reduction in benefits. After the six-month “confidence period” has expired, higher deductions are possible in the event of breaches of duty. For example, when you turn down a decent job. The first violation will be deducted 20 percent from the standard rate, the second 30 percent.

Citizens’ allowance: Hartz 4 successor is heavily criticized – “disrespect”
The Union sharply criticized the template. Labor market policy spokesman Stephan Stracke (CSU) explained that the new regulation would make it more attractive not to work. “This is disrespect for the unemployed and the taxpayers who finance the solidarity system with their contributions.”

Social associations, on the other hand, criticized the planned standard rate increase as too low. “The approximately 50 euros more for single adults only sounds like a lot at first glance,” said Michael Groß, President of Arbeiterwohlfahrt. “Because in view of the standard rates that were already too low and the current inflation, this just compensates for the inflation rate. The planned citizen’s income is “not sufficient in every way.” (ari/dpa)
