VBL Online Pension Information Session

You are currently working or residing in Germany. This means you are contributing to the social security system, of which the DRV – Deutsche Rentenversicherung - is a part. In addition, you might be insured with the VBL – Versorgungsanstalt des Bundes und der Länder – via your employer. This pension information session will shed light on the German pension landscape – the state and company pension scheme - as a topic.

Are you an international doctoral candidate, postdoctoral researcher or scientist at a University or Research Institute in Bremen or Lower Saxony with a current or past work contract, and hence paying into the German pension schemes without knowing exactly, for what you pay and what you can get back from this money for your future pension? In this information session you will get an insight into the German pension landscape and learn who will pay your pension one day. Furthermore, you will get to know tips and tricks to not lose your entitlements.

A registration is not necessarily needed but welcomed.
