Citizen's Income instead of Hartz IV: New Changes in 2023

Although the Hartz IV system was designed to provide financial support to the unemployed, it has often been viewed by critics as unworthy and insufficient.

However, there is still much work to be done to ensure that the new system is fair, effective and sustainable. In this article, we will go into more detail about what the Burgergeld is, what benefits it brings, what impact it can have, and what needs to be worked on to achieve the goal of better support for the unemployed.

Attention! Ak tyrol warns against online credit offers

In the age of the digital world, it has become easy and convenient to purchase all kinds of services and products online. So also credits. The Corona pandemic has led to a boom in online shopping and banking, but also to an increase in dubious offers online.
