Request settlement of an accident insurance pension in the event of a reduction in earning capacity of less than 40 percent

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Is your earning capacity permanently reduced by less than 40 percent? Then you can apply for a settlement of the current pension. How the settlement amount is calculated is regulated in a legal ordinance. Among other things, your age at the time of the accident and the time that has passed since the accident play a role here.

With a settlement, your pension entitlement then expires in principle for life.

If you are entitled to several pensions with a combined reduction in earning capacity of less than 40 percent, all or only some of them can be settled.

If your health condition worsens later as a result of the insured event, your pension entitlement may be revived for this part of the worsening.
