German Pension Refunds (Rentenversicherung)

German pension refund icon

If you're a resident of a non-European Union country and have worked in Germany, you may have paid into a pension fund. Pension Insurance Contributions (Rentenversicherung) in Germany are usually 9.75% of your salary.

Once you have been out of Germany for at least two years, we can apply to get all your pension payments refunded.

Taxback.com customers get an average pension insurance refund of €5,410 from Germany.

To be eligible to claim a German pension refund, you must be a resident of a non-EU country (excluding Turkey, Israel and the former Yugoslavian states) and you must have paid contributions into the German Pension Fund for less than 60 months (5 years).

We can apply for your unclaimed German pension refunds and go back as far as 1994.

In addition to your pension refund, we can also provide your German income tax refund

The average German tax refund is €1,020. The amount you get back depends on a number of factors such as what type of job you worked at, how long you were in Germany and how much tax you paid. When you apply for a German tax refund, we will look at your individual circumstances to find out how much you’re owed. Find out more about claiming a tax refund from Germany here.

    My contract and work permit ended in mid 2021, i had the pleasure in having my case handled by taxback professional representative Nina Velikova. Since my case was little complicated Nina took the extra mile in contacting me via phone to assist me in fully understanding my case and how we can execute it in the best way for my maximum benefit. Thanks to Nina and taxback team.

    Good and affordable service Good and affordable service. With their help, I was able to file late returns in Canada and New Zealand, which included complicated double-taxation issues. I especially appreciated their willingness to communicate regularly with me via email. Thank you.
