My son is sprung from a training course and will start on another. He is going to have to wait until there is a new recording of the training course, and has sought the local authority on incapacity benefit in the period, but it has been rejected.
he has a forældrebetalt børneopsparing, which the municipality believes he must spend before they will provide cash assistance.
the Savings was conceived as a contribution to the establishment in a private dwelling, but it will be difficult, if the money must be used for the rent and other necessary expenses now.
in this situation? You can avoid that the saved funds be used, before commencing new education?
I have suggested to him that I can borrow his savings, but it will probably look weird out in the municipality's eyes.
With many greetings and thanks in advance.
I have repeatedly had this issue in The Social Letterbox – probably because a great many people are surprised, what the municipality really must set off, when citizens are searching for help.
A principafgørelse from Ankestyrelsen says quite clearly that børneopsparing is to consider as the fortune. The municipality can therefore – in accordance with the law on active social policy section 14 – consider børneopsparing as a real fortune.
the Rule says that a municipality may set-off all assets that exceed an amount of 10,000 crowns, which is the limit amount for a single person.

that your son has a disclosure obligation, and that it can be a criminal offence to fail to disclose significant changes in its economic conditions, while receiving public benefits.
It will say that he has a duty to inform the municipality of his fortune, when he receives help. The municipality will, however, always ask for bankudskrifter to ensure that there are just not fortune, before taking a decision on the merits to using.
in your son's situation opt to receive public benefits for a period, until they have found out that ’invest’ savings under way – so that the ommøblere it.
You are even inside of the solution. And some do it, but as you yourself write, then it will seem too obvious if you did it with the same.
Therefore, waiting for some a piece of time to apply for the grant. I must not make me wise on whether it is morally correct – and I would not advise anyone to do it.
it is harsh that you have to live by its børneopsparing. I believe that it should be exempted from the offset, as it often is a savings that is deposited throughout the child's life, and which should be ’start’, as you also describe.
the Idea that social assistance/uddannelseshjælp is the lower economic safety net, is harsh in some respects, and shall not be taken into individual consideration. But the idea that you need to exhaust your assets before you can get sikkerhedsnettets lowest performance, gives on his show is also good sense.
But I can well understand that many are wondering that børneopsparinger are not exempt from the formuereglen.
crowns are the maximum amount, you as a single must have in fortune, if you are on social assistance. For couples is the amount of 20,000 crowns.
living out of his fortune, before one can get cash assistance.
uddannelseshjælp, start and integrationsydelse is the lowest, the economic safety net of our welfare system.
