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 €5410 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 €1020. 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.

    I was notified of a tax refund and what I had to do to receive it. This only took a few minutes to complete and I was notified I'd be paid within a few days. I'm glad this was all sorted out because I had mixed messages about this refund saying I wasn't entitled then another message to say I was. This was the best news of all. A very speedy process and I'm thrilled.

    This was very easy to understand and fast process. It was great whenever I didn't understand something or had an issue, I could chat to an agent at any time and the issue would be resolved fast.

    I am grateful that Taxback team was very responsive and kind during the whole process which took more than a year. They explained me everything in detail and finally I received my taxes. Team is great and I recommend this service for every foreigner who does not know how to receive their taxes on their own.

    Awesome experience from the very beginning till the end.. I left New Zealand 3 years ago and didn't even know that I still be able to claim my tax back from that time till I stumbled across one of their ads on Google.. So I just gave it a try and it couldn't have been any better.. Even I didn't had any Payslips or even a Copy of my Visa anymore, they got everything sorted for me in less than a month.. Very responsive with Emails and live chat.. They even have a live tracker where they update you with all the details you need..Highly recommended.. Thanks a lot Guys

    Almost perfect, maybe a little slowly like a process, but still correct.

    Really easy process and no issues with the refund process. Kept up to date with the process all the way. The expected return estimate that they gave was the amount that they refunded.
