Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Do you need a certificate of the contributions you have paid to the pension fund for your income tax return? You can request this certificate free of charge.

Contributions to the agricultural pension fund are tax-deductible to a certain extent.

This applies to contributions from

  • male or female farmers,
  • their spouses or life partners as well as family members who work with them.
  • family members who work for them.

If you need proof of the contributions you have paid, you can request a corresponding contribution certificate for the relevant tax year.

You can also request the certificate if you are not currently insured but were insured in the past. It may no longer be possible to obtain a certificate for very long periods in the past.

You can use this certificate, for example, when claiming expenses for old-age provision as part of the special expenses deduction for your income tax return.

However, we will not send the certificate without your request because the pension fund is not legally obliged to issue the certificate regularly for all insured persons.

Do you believe that the certificate does not list contributions completely or correctly? Then please contact the Social Insurance for Agriculture, Forestry and Horticulture (SVLFG).
