Abstract

Am 9. Februar 2010 hat das Bundesverfassungsgericht die Berechnung der Hartz-IV-Regelsätze für nicht konform mit der Verfassung der Bundesrepublik Deutschland befunden. In diesem Artikel wird die aktuelle Hartz-IV-Gesetzeslage dargelegt, die Kritik des Bundesverfassungsgerichts zusammengefasst, die alternativen Berechnungs- und Auszahlungsmodalitäten im bestehenden System aufgezeigt und Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten diskutiert.
