Reapplying for a statutory accident insurance pension due to aggravation after a settlement

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

You can receive a pension again from the statutory accident insurance after a settlement on application and under certain conditions.

It may be possible to receive a lump sum payment from the statutory accident insurance instead of a regular pension.

If your state of health worsens after a settlement has been granted, you are again entitled to a full pension. This is known as the revival of the settled pension. The settlement amount paid is offset against your pension.

To receive a pension again, you must submit an application to your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.


Process flow

You can apply to have your pension reinstated online or by post.
