Imagine 20 years ahead - do you think you'll remember the different pension institutions and possible occupational pension providers you'll be entitled to claim benefits from later? If not, then now is the time to deal with the pension topic.
Due to your professional mobility, questions and uncertainties may arise when it comes to your social security and old-age pension provision.
In order for you to understand and plan your pension, you’ll need adequate information on this very diverse topic. Therefore, the Welcome Centre is hosting an event to shed light on this topic and how it will affect you.
The DRV and the VBL represent the German pension landscape. You’ll also be introduced to an information portal called FindyourPension . This website deals with various pension providers within the different European countries and provides concise information regarding this theme.
The aim of this event will be to answer questions such as the following:
- Do I qualify for a pension in Germany?
- What pension benefits can I expect?
- Will I still be entitled to collect a pension from Germany once I leave the country?
- If I do not qualify for a pension, how can I have my contributions reimbursed?
- What do I need to do in order to collect my pension on retirement?
After the event, a question and answer session will deal with your remaining questions. In addition, the VBL offers short individual consultations of 15 minutes on a first come, first serve basis. Please register for participation as well as for the individual VBL consultation here .
The event will be held in English.
