Special social assistance

You can apply for special assistance if certain circumstances have occurred that bring costs with them for which you have insufficient income or capital.

You should apply for special assistance before the costs occur. We do not reimburse costs which were incurred more than three months ago. We calculate this based on the date on which, for example, a treatment started or on which a district judge made a ruling.

Step by step

  1. Print the application form and fill in your details.
  2. Send the form, enclosing the documents required, to the Municipality of Eindhoven.
  3. We will inform you in writing of our decision within 8 weeks.
  4. Your application for special assistance has been granted? The money will generally be paid into your account the next month. This may take a little longer some months.
