I have found a form for applying for an IT-Fachkräftezulage but have no idea whether I'm eligible.

What is this actually?


Compensation when working for the German state is strongly regulated. Salaries according to the regulations are not competitive for IT specialists.

The IT-Fachkräftezulage is a regulatory exception to offer IT specialists working for the government a higher salary.

You are eligible if you are an IT Specialist applying for a government job and the position you are applying for is in a specific salary range. The salary range is specified in German as "Entgeltgruppen 9a bis 15 TVöD oder Entgeltgruppen 9 bis 15 TV-V".
