There are no more appointments at the Jobcenter or the employment agency and you can’t do anything there in person anymore. All requests and applications can be handled informally by e-mail ( Jobcenter-LK-Tuebingen@jobcenter-ge.de ) or online (www.arbeitsagentur.de/eServices ). You can also throw letters into the house mailbox. This also applies to reporting unemployment, in case of dismissal or applying for social benefits. New telephone lines are also available: Employment agency: 0800 4 555500 (free of charge); Jobcenter: 07071 5652 0. Waiting times may vary.
The Employment Agency stresses that there are no disadvantages in not being able to come in person. The ability of both institutions to work is guaranteed and the payment of financial benefits has top priority.
