Municipality of Amersfoort: applying for study benefit for students with a disability

Working alongside your studies can be difficult for you due to a physical or psychological disability. A side job to earn money is therefore not possible. That is why we can offer you a helping hand. A monthly amount: the Study Allowance.

The following conditions apply:

  • You are registered with the municipality of Amersfoort of Leusden.
  • You do not receive Wajong benefits, which are benefits under the Wet arbeidsongeschiktheidsvoorziening jonggehandicapten (Law on the provision of incapacity benefit to disabled young people).
  • You receive student finance under the Wet op de studiefinanciering – WSF (Student Finance Act) or a contribution on the basis of the Wet tegemoetkoming onderwijsbijdrage en schoolkosten – WTOS (Fees and Educational Expenses (Allowances) Act).
  • You are fundamentally unable to earn an income alongside your studies due to illness or infirmity. You can demonstrate this by means of a recent medical report from a recognised medical examiner. That report shows that you have limited capacity due to your disability. The report may not be more than 2 years old. Do you not have that report? The municipality will assess whether you belong to the target group on the basis of the Verordening loonkostensubsidie (Wage Subsidy Regulation). You must cooperate with any investigation that may be required.

For more information, contact the municipality from Monday to Friday between 09:00 - 17:00 at the following phone number: 00 31 33 469 51 11.
