Request certificate of paid contributions from the Agricultural Pension Fund

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Contributions to the Agricultural Pension Fund are tax-deductible to a certain extent.

This applies to contributions by

  • farmers,
  • their spouses or partners, and family members working with them.
  • family members working with 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. For very long periods in the past, a certificate may no longer be possible.

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 there is no legal obligation for the pension fund to issue the certificate regularly for all insured persons.

In your opinion, are the contributions listed in the certificate incomplete or incorrect? Then please contact the Social Insurance for Agriculture, Forestry and Horticulture (SVLFG).
