Arbeitslosenversicherung für Solo-Selbständige: Eine qualitative Studie zur Antragspflichtversicherung nach § 28a SGB III


  • Sowa, Frank


"In 2013, the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) evaluated as part of its statutory mandate, according to § 282 SGB III the voluntary unemployment insurance according to § 28a SGB III ('Antragspflichtversicherung'). First, this research project collected the assessments of managers and professionals from divisions of the Federal Employment Agency (BA). The research interest focused on the evaluation and implementation of the unemployment insurance upon request. Furthermore, the research project analysed the actual living conditions of solo self-employed and examined the role of the voluntary employment insurance to start a business and the relevance of social security systems for solo self-employed (unemployment insurance, health insurance, pension insurance). The study focuses on the group of solo self-employed as it is a particularly vulnerable group of self-employed." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
