How do pensions work across borders?

Anyone working abroad will probably at some time be confronted with the issue of how to claim their pension.  Either because they made pension payments in their country of origin before coming to Germany, or because they return there after a working life here and want to claim their German state pension.

The foreigners’ advisory council (Ausländerbeirat) have organised an information evening about the topic which will take place on Tuesday, 13th May, 2014 at 5.30pm in the council chamber at Oberursel’s town hall.  Peter Lauer from the Deutsche Rentenversicherung will be talking about how to claim a cross-border pension, how much to expect and how to top-up a pension on a voluntary basis.

Entry is free!
