Do you have any questions?

Is hartz4widerspruch. de really free of charge?
Yes. When we review your decision, we will apply for financial consulting assistance from the government. This way, you will not face any costs even in the event of an unsuccessful objection. If we win the objection on your behalf, the Job centre will pay the costs of your legal assistance.
Does the job center really pay back money?
Yes, the job center is obliged to pay. If it turns out during the examination of your notification that the job center wrongfully refuses to provide benefits, we will file an objection. The result is a reimbursement or adjustment of the benefits. If you have any problems, we will evaluate your chances of a successful lawsuit.
What should I do if my notification is expired?
The objection period lasts for 1 month after the notification is issued. If your notification is older and has been issued within the last year, you can submit a review request (create here automatically). The request for review has the same effect as an objection, but has a longer processing time.

No time? Send the Hartz 4 notification directly via Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp.


You can send us all notices from the job center directly via WhatsApp. Within a few days you will receive your test report and the objection against your job center as usual.
