Special social relief

If you unexpectedly have big expenses that you cannot afford, the SZW unit may be able to help you with special social relief. Examples of necessary big expenses include the purchase of a bed, stove, washing machine, refrigerator, fan, baby layette and school supplies for children in secondary education. If you have to extract teeth but have a low income, the SZW unit may also be able to reimburse these costs for you.
