The social letterbox: Can I get more incapacity benefit as mentally ill

I'm on welfare and have been it for some years. I have always had problems in my life, and have therefore been through many things. It has meant that I never really got started with a training or have been able to have a job.

on all sorts of courses and training in the municipality, but they have never really led to anything. The last time I was out in an internship a few years ago – snapped I together. Since then I have gone for follow-up meetings at the job centre.

One thing is to be stuck in this system where I must to all the meetings with different social workers, who do not know anything about me and my life, and who can never help me on. Another thing is my whole miserable economy, that after so many years really has worn on me.

extremely isolated, as I never have advice for either a bus ticket or a cup of coffee out in the city. I'm luckily in a group, which ’ratchets’ food, so on the way of doing I with the help of some nice people who come over with it, they even have profits.

But there was one that told me that if I was mentally ill, I could get more in cash assistance. I have just never heard of before – it is there never anyone in the job center who told me. Can it be true?

I just want to hear you, is it true, can it change my life totally. Just 500 dollars extra a month more will get my life to hang together better. Here, each count a 25-ear.

Your friend is not completely wrong – it's actually not an urban myth.

You can get a higher benefit on social assistance/uddannelseshjælp, if you have a psychiatric diagnosis, but it is just not so straightforward. The law is screwed such that it strange and unfair to only show some of the diagnosis, which triggers the higher level of performance, if you are under 30 years of age and, therefore, set on low performance.

your exact diagnosis, so I I can't say whether you are in the target audience. But I can inform you about the following rules – so you can see if you belong to one of the few groups that have the ’right’ diagnosis, which triggers the higher rate.

After the law on active social policy section 23). 3, no. 4 and 5 (uddannelseshjælp) and section 25). 3, no. 4 and 5 (dole) is the following documented mental disorders/diagnoses, which give the right to a higher performance:

skizotypisk disorder, persistent psychotic state, short-term psychotic state, schizoaffective disorder, unspecified not organic conditional psychosis, emotionally unstable personality structure of borderlinetypen.

that you just inform that you have one of the above diagnoses. You must be able to document it in the form of a medical certificate, a speciallægeundersøgelse or, for example, with printouts of medical records from a hospital.

All the best of luck to you.

The young mentally ill who receive cash assistance on ungesatserne, including the reduced rate, have difficulty accessing social assistance number for the fixed expenses like housing, food, medicine and other including the costs of socializing. The pressured economy can unwind the mentally ill young people and hence be a contributing cause of, the disease becomes aggravated.
