About 300 school-age children from Ukraine in GL

The number of refugees from Ukraine in Bergisch Gladbach is slowly increasing, but many are preparing for a long stay. A good quarter of them are children who need a place in school. Bureaucratic processes have stabilized a bit, but now there is a change within the social system – so the city is appealing to those affected to report to the immigration office and the duty station.

The city administration provided the latest figures to the Social Committee on Thursday evening: 1,120 IDPs from Ukraine currently live in Bergisch Gladbach, 379 of them are in municipal housing, 741 of whom are privately housed.

708 of the refugees are adults, of whom 547 are women and 161 are men.

However, there are 412 under the age of 17, and about 300 are believed to be of school age. In the 0 to 6 age group, the city registered 114 people, between 7 and 12 there are 161 children and between 13 and 17 years old 137. So there are a lot of children and young people being cared for in overcrowded schools and day care centers that really need to become.

Practical solutions requested for school children

Brigitta Obiella (CDU), who is largely involved in caring for refugees in Revrath, told the commission that many people from Ukraine wanted to stay in Germany; Many children do not have a place in school yet, so practical solutions must be found quickly.

The city did not provide any information on how many young Ukrainians were actually enrolled in school; The Municipal Integration Center of the district administration is officially responsible for this.

New bureaucratic law

The administration stated that refugee registration in the city’s social system is now going well after initial problems. Payment of benefits under the Asylum Act will be transferred from checks to bank transfers.

However, a major new bureaucratic law is due on June 1st: Social benefits will then be processed via the Employment Center or via the Basic Insurance Scheme. This requires new applications.

The city administration has for some time been promoting the need for Ukrainians to first obtain a (temporary) residence permit from the Migration Office (from the District Administration) and then report to the Job Center – however, so far, without much response. Although the immigration office operates through and also offers appointments on weekends.

According to the city, the new registration has advantages for everyone: the benefits are higher, access to the health system is easier – and the city’s coffers are also comfortable.

How and where people from Ukraine have to register are detailed in this article. Here are the main points again:

How do I apply to the Career Center?

Applications for benefits at the Job Center (SGB II) can be submitted online: https://kontaktcenter.jobcenter-rhein-berg.de/kontaktcenter/ukraine. Forms are available in the local language.

The above web pages can be called up in the following order via the browser: www.jobcenter-rhein-berg.de -> digital offers -> call center -> Ukraine -> select interests.

Where can I obtain a residence permit?

Refugees who do not have a residence permit or a temporary permit (“fictitious certificate”) should contact the immigration authorities in the Rheinisch-Bergisch region as soon as possible. Jobcenter Rhein-Berg will be on site at this appointment and will offer you acceptance of your SGB II benefits application at the same time.

Those affected will be actively contacted. The city has appealed that anyone who gets a date should definitely keep it. If you have not received an appointment, you can contact the Immigration Office directly by e-mail: auslaenderbehoerde@rbk-online.de

How do I apply for Basic Security?

People over 65 who have fled Ukraine will get money from basic insurance (SGB XII) from the city administration from June 1. The prerequisite here is that they have a (temporary) residence permit. However, the Basic Security Application can also be submitted even if you do not have a residence permit yet. At the Social Welfare Office, Entrance C, An der Gohrsmühle 18.
