ibb.de has thwarted our plans to help our Life Admin clients with the application form for Soforthilfe II (Landesmittel) online by giving everyone a place in the waiting line and offering you 35 minute slots to complete your application. Since your place in the line might come up at 10pm, we’ve decided to create text instructions to talk you through it instead.
I paid for Red Tape Translation to help me with this form. What do I do now?
If you’re a Life Admin client and you have already paid for us to take you through the form personally, we have already sent you an email with a password for this content. We’ll deduct 30 minutes of the fee you paid. If you booked more time than that, you’ll have credit.
Edit 3.4.2020: If you have already purchased this guide and have not yet used it, but your waiting number is lower than 650,000, please get in touch with me.
I would like to see the instructions but I’m not a Life Admin client.
If you’re not a Life Admin client and you’d like help filling out the IBB Soforthilfe II (Landesmittel) application form, we have a list of documents you’ll need, an instructional video and step-by-step text instructions that go through the entire form. In the video, you’ll see me (Kathleen) going through my application online.
I’ve heard the form has been changed!
Yes, the IBB put applications on hold and have spent the last few days recreating the form. The previous state funds have been left out and the new application has been consolidated as “Federal funding”. This means you can no longer use the grant to cover your personal costs, e.g. rent and health insurance. Read more about that here. I ask you to please only buy the guide if your waiting number in the queue is higher than 650,000.
Why are you charging?
This was a lot of work under high pressure with time constraints. Keeping up with all the updates and changes in regulations over the past week or so has also been very time-consuming… so I decided to charge a nominal fee to cover my costs. I’m sure if you search hard enough, you can find help for free online as well. This is not meant as a cold and heartless revenue raiser, it’s a way to serve my Life Admin clients and the general public under very unexpected and ever-changing conditions.
Fill out the details below, make your payment, and we will send you a two-time-password for access by email immediately. Use this password twice – once to make sure it works OK and then once while you’re filling out your application. Please make sure you have filled out your email address correctly and that you check your spam folder.
