  • Part 4: Welfare benefits for former soldiers on time in the event of unemployment

In the first section of the second part, the SVG regulates, among other things, the provision of temporary service for soldiers. The period of service provision of a temporary soldier includes, among other things, the entitlement to transitional fees and transitional allowances . Here, however , a distinction must be made between the period of service provision for professional soldiers, which is mainly regulated in the second section of the second part.
