In your federal state reception center you receive statutory aids and an initial fitting-out.

You receive as non-cash benefits:
• vouchers for breakfast, lunch and dinner
• bed linen and dishware
• clothes and hygiene products

Besides, you receive pocket money for your individual demand. It is paid cash and it is calculated for one person of legal age (18 years). Only one member of a family receives the full sums. Other family members receive reduced sums.

Hygiene products are part of the initial fitting-out. After having received pocket money, you will have to buy them yourself. You will receive vouchers for clothes from the social welfare office, which allow you to do shopping in the city. Urgent supply of clothing is secured by means of a clothing store.
