In this guide we explain, step by step, how you can log in using your electronic identification (eID) and submit an application for the one-off payment.

These three steps will enable you to complete the application process:
Please note: Keep your access code even after you have submitted your application. This will enable you to log back into the site at any time and view the status of your application.
Open the webpage antrag.einmalzahlung200.de on an NFC-capable smartphone.
Enter your access code and the Land (German state) where your education or training establishment is located. Then select “Log in using BundID”.
You will be taken to the BundID welcome page.
Select “Log In” on the BundID welcome page.
On the next BundID page, “eID card” is already selected. Please log in.
You will be taken to a new page, where you can check if you have everything you need to log in. Select “Continue with AusweisApp2” and confirm that the app can be opened. You will be taken to AusweisApp2.
In AusweisApp2, confirm that data access is permitted and select “Proceed to PIN entry”. Then start the NFC scan. Your identity document will be read by your smartphone using NFC (near-field communication). Hold your identity document against your device in line with the instructions, and wait until it is recognised.
Enter the six-digit PIN associated with your identity document. You will then be taken back to the Einmalzahlung200 website.
You are now logged in and can begin the process of submitting your application.
Once you have logged in, you will be taken to the application overview page. Select “Create application”.
You are now on the application page. Please check the list again to make sure you fall into one of the groups eligible to apply for the payment. You can then begin filling out your application. It usually only takes a few minutes to complete.
The access code is automatically entered in the application form based on the information you provided while logging in.
You can now enter your application details. Some fields are automatically completed with information taken from your BundID account (e. g. first name, last name, email address). Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
Information about your place of residence and telephone number is also added automatically from your BundID account; this is so we can contact you more easily if there are any problems, for example. However, this information is optional.
If you do not wish to pass on these details, you can delete this information from the form before you submit the application.
Then enter the details of the bank account (IBAN) to which the payment is to be made. You can specify your own account, an account belonging to someone else, or a joint account. If you specify your own account, your name is entered automatically.
Please note that the one-off payment can only be paid into your account if your bank supports SEPA transfers. SEPA includes all EU Member States as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Monaco, San Marino, Andorra, the Vatican City State and the United Kingdom. If you do not have an account in the SEPA area, you can specify an account belonging to someone else. In this case, please make sure that this account has not previously been used to receive the one-off payment.
You will then be asked to confirm your eligibility and other general declarations. Read the text of the declarations carefully. You can find further information about them in the FAQ. If you have any questions, you can contact the support team. Once you have completed all required fields and confirmed your eligibility and the declarations, click “Submit”.
That’s it! Once the information you have entered has been validated, you will receive the message “Your application has been successfully submitted” on the application overview page. From the overview page, you can view your submitted application (read-only) if you click on the application number.
Your application will now be examined. If all of the requirements are met, the one-off payment will be granted and paid.
