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 €3032 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 unclaimed German pension refunds for as far back as 1994 so it can be very lucrative.

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 liked everything about taxback, but the main reason that I wanted to take this survey was to write my thoughts about your agent. I am extremely satisfied with the professionalism of agent Elena! She was VERY helpful and Professional! One of the those rare agents that you can feel her professionalism and kindness through e-mails. She was very prompt and precise. I would definitely use taxback again just because you have such an awesome agent! Very professional customer service by Elena! Thank you so much!

    Having the return of mytaxes. I even got more than expected. The bad part, not sure if it was taxback or the US government fault,was that it took 2 years to get the 2015 reimbursment. Thank you, Regards
