The income of my parents has changed so much because of the corona virus that they can no longer support me financially or to the usual extent. What can I do?
You can apply for BAföG or, if you already have BAföG, apply for an update to get a higher BAföG rate in the current year.
Normally, the parents' income from the penultimate calendar year is taken into account when calculating the BAföG. If parents lose part of their income now, for example due to short-time working due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the BAföG office can take this into account.
If you are already receiving BAföG, you will submit an update request on which the parents or parents affected by the income reduction enter their income information in the calendar years in which the approval period is located. The application must be signed by you and your parents or the parent concerned. You can find the update request here (Form 7).
If you have not yet received a BAföG, but your parents' income has now fallen sharply, you may be entitled to a BAföG. So it can be worthwhile to submit an application. Again, in addition to the normal request, the update request must be made. You can find all application forms here .
Attention: Funding is provisional! After the end of the approval period, evidence of the parents' actual income must be presented. Then the funding amount is recalculated. If income is too low in the update request, it can be reclaimed.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared global coronavirus infections a pandemic. The federal authority responsible for infectious diseases and infection protection in Germany, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), provides information on its website about the current situation, risk assessment and maintains a detailed FAQ that is constantly updated and expanded.
