Background and requirements
The energy price payment is based of the law on the payment of an energy price allowance (Gesetz zur Zahlung einer Energiepreispauschale).
All students who were enrolled at a German university as of December 01, 2022, and who have their domicile or habitual residence in Germany are entitled to the payment. However, this does not apply to those who were enrolled as auditors or for preparatory studies at Studienkolleg.
To receive the energy price payment, you must submit an application via the central website https://www.einmalzahlung200.de/eppsg-en .
As a student, you will need an access code for this, which you will receive from your university. As a TUM student, you will find your personal access code in TUMonline.
