ASSISTANCE



If you accidentally find yourself in distress, we advise you to become acquainted with the rights that belong to you in the social security of the Republic of Slovenia.

 

First, you should check all the conditions that you must comply with in order to be eligible for receiving financial assistance.

 

The most frequent condition that you must fulfill in order to be eligible for receiving social assistance is the permanent residence and actually stay in Maribor (the control is carried out!).

 

ATTENTION: 

Since the conditions for entitlement to support, as well as the forms of social assistance often change, it is essential that you personally contact the advisors who will be happy to help you.
