The Ministry of Finance, led by the FDP, has calculated how high the relief for citizens that has been decided so far is.

The state aid that has been decided so far is intended to help deal with inflation and the energy crisis.

Whether they are sufficient for this depends on many factors: gas consumption and electricity-saving options, how cold the winter is and how well the apartment is renovated - and who is actually entitled.

Here are some examples from the Ministry's calculations.

Single, gross salary: 61,500 euros, car for commuting

Total relief: 425 euros

Of which tax relief: 146 euros

Energy flat rate (after taxes): 185 euros.

Tank discount (for occasional trips by car): around 59 euros

Abolition of the EEG surcharge: 35 euros

Pensioner, pension: 1000 euros, housing benefit, car for shopping and family visits

Total relief: around 362 euros

Heating allowance: 270 euros

Tank discount: 57 euros

Abolition of the EEG surcharge: 35 euros

Dual-income family with two children.

Annual salary: twice around 35,000 euros

Total relief: around 1150 euros

Tax relief (including commuter allowance) 232 euros

Energy flat rate (after taxes): 430 euros

Child bonus: 200 euros

Tank discount (for around 2500 kilometers per month): 210 euros

Abolition of the EEG surcharge: 76 euros.

Recipients of basic security, 449 euros basic security, fully covered rental and heating costs, no car

Total relief: 235 euros

One-off payment for welfare recipients: 200 euros

Abolition of the EEG surcharge: 35 euros

Self-employed, income: 42,000 euros gross, travels a lot by car

Total relief: 463 euros out.

Higher basic allowance: 69 euros

Tank discount: 160 euros

Abolition of the EEG surcharge: 39 euros

Energy flat rate: 195 euros.

Student with student loans and a 450-euro job

Total relief: 615 euros

Energy flat rate: 300 euros

Heating allowance: 230 euros

9 Euro ticket: 50 Euro (instead of semester ticket)

Abolition of the EEG surcharge: 35 euros

Many assumptions are made for Treasury Department calculations: Does anyone own a car?

And how much does the person drive?

Frequent drivers in particular benefit from the fuel discount.

Pensioners are not categorically included as recipients of the energy flat rate.

Just like students: They benefit from the energy price flat rate if they receive student loans - but this only applied to around eleven percent of students in 2021.

Students who are engaged in an activity that is subject to income tax can also apply for the lump sum.
