German Welfare Payments To Foreigners Double In 12 Years

German Welfare Payments To Foreigners Double In 12 Years.

According to figures released as a response to a parliamentary inquiry submitted by Germany’s far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD), German daily Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung reported on Friday that the amount in welfare that foreigners receive in Germany has almost doubled from 2007 to 2019.

As DW.com reports, Germany’s social welfare program for the long-term unemployed, known as Hartz IV, was introduced in 2005 and dispenses aid to recipients while requiring them to regularly engage with a job-center advisor and show they’re actively looking for work or enrolled in approved work-preparatory skills-training programs.

It is available to all Germans who qualify as well as other EU citizens in Germany and asylum-seekers permitted to work but unable to find employment.

Roughly €6.1 billion of welfare money given to foreigners went to people originated from the top eight asylum countries.
