After a settlement, reapply for a pension from the statutory accident insurance due to aggravation

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

It may be possible to receive a settlement from the statutory accident insurance instead of a regular pension, i.e. a one-off payment.

If your state of health worsens after you have been granted a settlement, you will again be entitled to a pension in full. This is called the resumption of the settled pension. The settlement amount paid will be credited against your pension.

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