Service Description

The pension information gives you an overview of your accrued entitlements and the amount of retirement pension you can expect. The pension information includes, among other things:

  • a presentation of the contributions you have paid to date,
  • an indication of the amount of pension entitlements you have acquired, both for a pension due to old age and for a pension due to full reduction in earning capacity, as well as
  • a projection of your old-age pension entitlements at the time you reach the standard old-age pension.

The extrapolation is based on an average of contributions paid over the last 5 calendar years. This makes the pension information an important basis for planning your additional private and company pension.

Together with your first pension information, you will also receive an insurance history. This will show you the periods and earnings stored in your pension insurance account.

Pension information is also sent abroad. However, if you live abroad, the automatic mailing will stop if you have not paid any contributions to the German pension insurance for more than 3 years.

The amounts stated in the pension information are gross amounts. Health and long-term care insurance contributions and, if applicable, taxes must still be paid from the pension amount stated.

In addition, the pension information contains an explicit reference to the fact that the calculation of your projected pension does not take into account the loss of purchasing power. On the back of your pension information, you will find a concrete calculation example for the loss of purchasing power.
