Request a pension information

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The pension information contains

  • information about the expected amount of your standard old-age pension,
  • a forecast of the pension you will receive if you continue to work,
  • information about the amount of your pension for reduced earning capacity,
  • information on the earliest possible start date for early retirement pensions, including information on pension deductions,
  • details of the widow's or widower's pension your partner will receive if you die,
  • details of contributions paid to date to the statutory pension insurance scheme,
  • among other things, notes and information on the prerequisites for all old-age pensions, on how to apply for a pension, on additional earnings, on the insurance history, on private old-age provision, on taxation, on information and advice options and on health insurance for pensioners,
  • if no account clarification has yet been carried out: information on which periods have not yet been clarified (these are periods of which the pension insurance fund does not know whether they can be taken into account for your later pension),
  • an overview of the saved insurance periods,
  • an overview of which values and factors were used to calculate your personal earning points and your standard retirement pension.

Notice:
The pension information is not the same as the pension information (often referred to as "Rentenbescheid"), which you receive every year from the age of 27. The pension information provides very comprehensive information about other pension entitlements. As soon as you are 55 years old, you will automatically receive a pension information instead of a pension information every 3 years. However, you can also request the information if you are younger.
