Which insurances are important for volunteers during a social year?

How do I have health insurance during my FSJ?

Voluntary social year abroad

The voluntary social year abroad or voluntary service abroad offers motivated adolescents and young adults from 16 years the opportunity to gain experience abroad.
Although the volunteer has statutory health insurance abroad, this is usually not sufficient. A possibly necessary return transport of the patient, for example, is not covered. Thus, as a volunteer, you are responsible for comprehensive insurance coverage (possibly the sponsoring organization will cover the costs).
Therefore, an international health insurance should always be taken out for the FSJ abroad, especially for non-European countries, and is the basis of the insurance coverage.

Voluntary social year in Germany

During voluntary service in Germany, young people and young adults can gain a variety of experiences that lead to great enrichment. For example, in a hospital, care for the elderly, in dealing with people with disabilities or in the domestic sector as well as in the administration and office of social institutions.

Good insurance is also necessary during voluntary service. The most important insurance for this is health insurance, since without this the costs of treatment in Germany must be borne by the volunteer.
