Development workers perform a special service. The framework conditions for the specialist service in solidarity are determined by German Development Aid Workers Act (EhfG) – including benefits and insurance for development workers.
In addition to social benefits, development workers receive a subsistence allowance that ensures a decent living. Additional benefits, e.g. rent and incidental expenditures, can also be paid in the host country.
Would you like to know the amount of maintenance benefits you are likely to receive in the event of employment as a development worker? We invite you to use our non-binding calculator. The calculator will determine your estimated subsistence allowance based on the details you provide. Please take into account: The sum identified is a non-binding calculation and may differ from a concrete calculation of the subsistence amount for a specific position. The requirements for development workers are specific to the particular position and cannot be displayed with the aid of this calculator.
