Recognition of a Severe Disability

One out of eleven Bavarian citizens is severely disabled. This translates to more than 1.1 million people.
Having received an application, we determine the impairment to health, the degree of disability (abbreviated to GdB) and the other symptoms of the applicant. If the degree of disability amounts to 50 or more, this constitutes a severe disability and the applicant shall receive a disabled person's card.

Tip: Make your application the convenient way: online.
