Additional needs allowances and subsidies

In appropriate cases, additional needs allowances under social security law and one-off benefits for pregnancy or the birth of a child may be claimed. These special needs are not directly linked to your studies. This means that even if you are receiving BAföG funding after the twelfth week of pregnancy, you may apply for a monthly additional needs allowance of 20 per cent of the standard rate of social security benefits. Moreover, non-recurrent allowances for maternity wear and initial baby equipment, for example, may be paid. The following documents must be submitted: proof of income, assets and rent, and confirmation of pregnancy.

Non-EU students who are in Germany for study-purposes (residence status § 16 ) have to face negative consequences regarding to their residence permit if they get susidies from the Unemployment Benefit II.
