Social Compensation

Social security not only means insuring oneself in advance against possible difficulties, but also being able to get help if specific problems have arisen.

Social compensation is meant for such situations and is thus an important element of state social benefits.

If a person is affected by damage which has occurred due to measures taken by the state, or is in a field in which the state bears special responsibility, victims and their surviving dependants can apply for financial compensation.

Social compensation provides for a wide range of benefits.
