One-Time Payment for Students

How Do University of Bremen Students Receive the One-Time Payment of 200 Euros?

Please Note

The federal government, specifically the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), is proving a one-time payment of 200 euros – also known as “Energiepreispauschale” (energy price lump sum) or “Einmalzahlung200.” The ministry stipulates who is eligible for the one-time payment and how to apply for it. The BMBF provides detailed information either at or for you to download (in German only). The BMBF website also provides a hotline that answers questions about the application process.

How Do You Apply For the One-Time Payment?

You can apply for the one-time payment of 200 euros at the digital platform.

You will need to provide proof of identity. The website above explains which documents for identity verification are accepted. In order to submit an application, you will need an individual login code. This login code will be given only to those who are eligible to apply.

Who Will Receive Individual Login Data, When, and How?

All students who legally resided in Germany and were enrolled at a German university (pursuing either a bachelor’s degree, their first legal examination, a master’s degree, or a PhD) on the cut-off date of December 1, 2022 are eligible to apply. You will soon receive two emails to your university account. The first email will inform you that your login code is available in the documents section of the moin-Portal. The second email provides you with the PIN that is required to apply to set up your BundID (Federal User Account). If you already set up a Federal User Account in the past, you do not need this PIN to apply for the one-time payment.

The University of Bremen will send out the relevant emails from March 15, 2023. If you want to know if you are eligible, and how to apply for the one-time payment, please check or the BMBF handout (in German).


Please Check Your University Email Inbox!

Some students do not regularly check their university email accounts. With regard to the one-time payment, this is problematic, because you will not receive the login code and PIN. Therefore, check your university email account regularly or forward emails to an email account you use day-to-day.
