After graduating from high school: how to secure child support for your offspring

After graduating from high school: how to secure child support for your offspring

The rough goal is achieved, but now the real work begins. After graduating from high school, young people have to watch out, otherwise their child benefit will be cut off. For parents, the question arises: will child benefits continue to be paid even if studies do not begin for several months?? Or should high school graduates register as unemployed for the time being??

How long do adults receive child benefit?

If the offspring is of age, parents can generally leave the field until the age of 25. Continue to receive child benefit after your 60th birthday. However, it is a prerequisite that the children are in initial education or are doing voluntary service. Important: the family insurance fund must be informed of the changes, explains the federal employment agency. Otherwise, payments may be stopped for the time being.

Child benefit between high school graduation and studies

If the next stage of education begins within four months after the end of the school education, it is sufficient to send the local family insurance fund a certificate of the beginning of the education or study or a certificate of a continuing school. If the evidence is not available in time, it can also be submitted later.

Whether he already works with the “ant” today?

Whether he already works with the

Maximilian raab is particularly looking forward to working with the ant. Maybe he is already working with the electronic lift truck this week. Today, monday, a new phase of life begins for the 16-year-old: the time of his apprenticeship. In three years, the robdorfer will be trained as a warehouse logistics specialist at the scheblitz logistics company bilog, a "gesellschaft fur logistik und informationsmanagement mbh", as it says in the official letter to maximilian's start of work. With a mixture of excitement and joy, the young man gave this 3. September seen ahead.

The course is set early

In july, the 16-year-old was released into life from the hirschaider school together with 134 other secondary school students and with his middle school leaving certificate in his pocket. He set the course for his apprenticeship much earlier than that. In the ninth grade, the curriculum for vocational internships gives one week of space. "That's far too little", finds maximilian raab. He has invested a total of four weeks of his summer and fall vacations in further internships at the various companies. "Especially the last week has brought it", he says now. The week in question he was at the bilog company, where he had an exceptionally good time.
He completed further internships with other logistics companies and in the retail trade – with some strange experiences: once, after the first day of the internship, the company remembered that the robdorfer intern, who was 14 years old at the time, was too young for them. "With other 14-year-olds, they had no problem", he wondered.
His various internships have given him important insights, he now knows. However, the young man had not left this to chance, but had informed himself together with his parents in advance at two training fairs in bamberg (2010 and 2011). At the bilog stand he had the opportunity to talk to former and current trainees, and he spontaneously filled out an application for a traineeship. The company contacted him and the vacation internship resulted from that. With two other young people who were interested in the same training, he completed this, got a good insight into the processes and fields of activity and information about the training. It lasts three years. After one day of trial work, the decision in favor of bilog was made.

Now there seems to be some movement in the matter.

A billboard

"The vocational school for music in kronach is a flagship of qualified training for state-certified musicians in upper franconia", in a press release issued by the district on monday, the educational institution was given a very good report. However, the document also contains the admission that the structural condition of the facility alone was increasingly restricting the school's operations.

District administrator klaus loffler as well as representatives of the district council, staff council chairwoman birgit eichstadter and district president henry schramm listened attentively to what principal andreas wolf had to say. "It was a pleasant, thoroughly positive conversation", wolf reported on monday in an interview with our newspaper.

The bad kissingen women’s ring invited members and guests to a search for traces of jewish life in bad kissingen – as the first event in the association’s fall program. Frauenring member marlies walter, who is a proven expert on the jewish history of bad kissingen, led a city walk to the homes and dwellings of well-known jewish families, bringing their often very sad history in the spa town back to life.
Until its destruction during the nazi era, bad kissingen was one of the largest and most important jewish communities in bavaria, with roots going back to the middle ages. The numerous "stolpersteine, the group of the women’s ring was accompanied on its way through the city by the memorial stones that had been laid in front of the places of residence or work of the victims of the nazi regime in bad kissingen in the past years.
The "judenhof" was the starting point of the investigation in the bachstrabe. Around 1850, the old synagogue was built in the bachstrabe, when it became too small, the new synagogue was built in the maxstrabe around 1900. In 1927/28 the old synagogue was demolished. The tour continued through the wahlerbrau parking lot to the current hotel "bayerischer hof", marlies walter explained that the kugelmann family once ran an international art and antiquities business in the rosengarten.
On their way, the group of the women’s ring passed the former jewelry store of the jewish rosenau family, which was located directly at the spa garden in the house collard. Here, in 1907, simon rosenau had made the chain of office of the mayor of bad kissingen, which is still in use today.
At the balling bazaar, one could still see the remains of a sign in the window of a store – this was intended to mark the shops of jewish owners, according to walter. After 1933, all jewish businesses were boycotted, and in 1938 the jewish doctors also lost their licenses.
In the ludwigstrabe there was the bankers family lowenthal. Ludwig lowenthal had been very politically active in addition to his profession, which is why he had to emigrate to amsterdam at an early stage, but was deported to theresienstadt in 1943, where he died in february 1944.
Several large businesses belonged to jewish owners, such as the fashion house of the ehrlich family. The ehrlich family was a typical german-jewish family, marlies walter said, a family that was well integrated. Hans-josef ehrlich, born in 1921, had to emigrate in 1938 to what was then palastina, where he found a new home with his new name joske ereli in the kibbutz en gedi on the dead sea – he would later be the initiator and active "motor" the partnership between the counties of bad kissingen and tamar, for which he received several awards. His father ludwig ehrlich ran the prestigious fashion house "felix ehrlich" with his wife grete and his brother franz in the ludwigstrabe 17, at that time the biggest business of the area. In 1908, his grandfather was the first jew to be elected to the town council of bad kissingen.
The group stopped at many houses, and marlies walter had many stories to tell about the former residents. Marlies walter concluded the tour at the former jewish community center, next to which the former synagogue had stood.
After kristallnacht, the jewish community was forced to sell the synagogue to the city, which then soon wore it down. The apartment of the long-serving cantor ludwig steinberger was located in this parish house. When the steinbergers realized that it was getting dangerous for jews in germany, they sent their eldest sons hans and herbert to the united states. There jack, as hans now hieb, became a physics professor and nobel prize winner from 1988.
Marlies walter reported that it was not until he was awarded the nobel prize that contact was re-established with bad kissingen – after he had reacquainted himself with his hometown, where he had made a close friend, especially in the former mayor georg straus. In 2001, the grammar school was named after the town’s famous son.

Mitwitz – "the castle chapel ‘seven pains of mary’ in mitwitz is one of the special cultural treasures of our french homeland", according to district local historian dieter lau on the occasion of a guided tour of the wurtzburg chapel in mitwitz moated castle, which has recently become the property of the district of kronach. Parish council chairman markus schindler and dieter lau opened the door to the chapel in the courtyard of the castle, which is framed by an artistically wrought iron grille.

This access was originally assigned to the subjects. The castle servants, the lower-ranking members of the public, could only enter the southwestern, remote part of the chapel from the castle courtyard. The wurtzburgs used the interior staircase tower in the southwest wing as an individual entrance to the lodge.

The separate access of subjects and rulers to the sacred space is an essential feature of a chapel of chivalry, says dieter lau. The first glimpse of the furnishings was provided by the buste of bishop veit II standing on a pedestal. From wurtzburg. It is considered the founder of the chapel. During his term of office, he conferred offices on his family members and endowed them with privileges.

Lunch in the old gym

Lunch in the old gym

Gestungshausen – with the new school year, the school childcare program of the "for you" association has also started the new premises of the gestungshausen school building are now in operation. After the renovation and conversion work, which totaled around 18,000 euros, the new home, which is located in the former gymnasium of the gestungshaus school, was officially opened.

Increased demand
More and more parents are taking advantage of the school's after-school care program. As a result, the space in the former janitor's apartment of the sonnefeld schoolhouse was no longer sufficient for school childcare, because the number of schoolchildren has grown from around ten to more than 30.
"We looked everywhere in advance for suitable rooms, since the sonnefeld school building did not have any had more capacity", explains youth welfare officer bjorn de rooij, who is also the contact person for "social affairs" is.

More space
"While the school childcare center had 70 square meters at its disposal in sonnefeld, it now has 200 square meters in the gestungshaus school building. In addition, the playground offers enough space for romping and playing outdoors.
In sonnefeld, the elementary school children had to share the playground with the other schoolchildren. Since these are laid out on three floors in sonnefeld, this did not exactly make supervision easier. The workroom, which is used for teaching purposes, is also available for school supervision in the afternoons. "A conscious decision was made to leave equipment in the gymnasium", explains mayor michael keilich. For example, the wall bars serve as a bulletin board and room divider for the cake line, because the elementary school students can also eat lunch there. Mats and a jumping jack also remained in the room. The mayor paid tribute to the building yard. Since the old lighting was too dark, the former gymnasium was given new lighting. With the friendly colors and the lattice-free windows, the room looks inviting and has a feel-good character. For the autumn vacations, the head of the community announced further modernization work in the gestungshausen school building.
For-you managing director joachim muller pointed out that, despite the vacation program, the childcare team helped out a lot with the setup. School childcare is offered from monday to friday. In addition, the association covers nine of the 14 vacation weeks with programs.
Head of supervision renate raab thanked her three colleagues who put a lot of heart and commitment into their work. She emphasized that the rooms of the school's childcare center can also be used for everyday teaching. Principal michael lege sees the new premises as a good basis for working with the schoolchildren.
