Insurance Office

Pension applications, account clarification and information

You can get information and answers to your questions about statutory pension insurance here at the insurance office

Your pension application or application for account clarification will be recorded with you here and forwarded to the German Pension Insurance for a decision. What pension you can expect at present or in the future will be explained to you on the basis of your relevant documents.

You can also receive further information on other areas of social insurance (unemployment, health, long-term care and accident insurance).

As you "browse" through these pages, you will hopefully gain interesting insights into a complex area of benefits.

By the way, the services of the insurance office are free of charge. Regardless of whether you submit applications, obtain information, or require certification or confirmation of documents for pension purposes.

  • Tasks of the insurance office

    The insurance office is the lower insurance authority. The tasks of the insurance offices are defined in Section 93 of Book 4 of the Social Security Code (SGB IV):

    (1) The insurance offices shall provide information on all social insurance matters and perform the other tasks assigned to them by law or other legislation. The Land governments may delegate individual tasks of the insurance offices to the municipal authorities by statutory order; the Land governments may further delegate this authorization to the supreme Land authorities.

    (2) The insurance offices shall accept applications for social insurance benefits. At the request of the insurance institution, they shall clarify the facts of the case, provide evidence, comment on the facts relevant to the decision where necessary and forward documents to the insurance institution without delay.

    (3) The insurance office in whose district the beneficiary has his/her place of residence or habitual abode or place of employment or activity at the time of the application shall be responsible. If no such place exists within the area of application of this Code, responsibility shall be based on the place where the requirements of sentence 1 were last met.

  • The pension

    Let's face it ...

    • Do you know how many types of pension there are in detail?
    • Do you know the requirements for drawing a pension?
    • Can you estimate the amount of your future pension?

    The statutory pension insurance system is subject to a constant process of adjustment in order to keep pace with social and economic change, so that the so-called intergenerational contract continues to function and the financing of pension benefits is secured. Get a first impression of today's pension types here and get in touch with your contact person for further questions.
