If you need help around the house due to an illness, SBK can assist by providing help at home
How to get home help:
Contact us to check in advance whether we can cover the costs of home help for you. We just need a few details. Just call your personal consultant. They will be happy to fill in the application with you and will then send everything to you for you to sign. When you are done, send the signed application to the following address: SBK, 80227 Munich, Germany.
You choose who will help you in your home. We work with many different organisations, including welfare organisations and social welfare agencies in towns and municipalities. The assistant comes to your home, and their costs are covered directly by us.
If you find an assistant yourself, we reimburse the costs up to €9.75 per hour or €78.00 per day.
We do not cover the cost of home help provided by your spouse or a family member related to you within two degrees (parents, grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, step-parents, stepchildren, step-grandchildren, parents-in-law, son or daughter-in-law, spouses of grandchildren, spouse’s grandparents, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law). In this case, however, we can reimburse verified loss of earnings and travel expenses incurred (max. €0.20 per km), up to a maximum of €105.88 per day.
If you are approved for less than eight hours per day, you will be reimbursed on a pro rata basis.
