Accommodation costs Pih:

Our institution has an AGB code for RIWB [Regional Institution for Protected Living], which is why we observe the regulations of the National accessibility for social shelter and protected living. We also have an AGB code for outpatient care and WLZ (long-term care). 
Additionally, we have a Wonen Plus (supervised housing) department. Clients need to pay a personal contribution (ZEB) of €350 per month for that trajectory. These residents will not be cut on their benefits. The personal contribution must be paid to the CAK [Central Administration Office]. The CAK offers an example calculation tool. As of 1-1-2020, the sum has been fixed at €19 per month. Our facilities are available to every citizen residing in the Netherlands, subject to availability and our specific criteria. The WWB [Work and Social Assistance Act] benefit for single households will not be cut, which is €1,052 (2020). For further information and to see whether this applies to you, please go to the website of the Municipality of The Hague.
