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.

    The whole process is quick and easy. The agents are fantastic to deal with and really helpful. I have been using Taxback.com for years now and have no intention to ever change. The level of customer services and communication is brilliant. I am always kept up to date as soon as information is available.

    The personal communications from your agents made all the difference in my choice to use TaxBack. Overwhelmed with what should have been a simple process due to an error going back several years in my taxes, I gave up doing them myself and handed it over to TaxBack. I was assured all 3 years would be fixed and my refunds recieved. Once I handed over my paperwork I never had to ask about updates or remind my agent to do anything - they were so on top of it and made it so easy! Matthew Lloyd was especially helpful and I can't thank him enough for his continued clear communications and patient explanations which saved me so much time!

    My tax manager Steven has been really very efficient since when I have been using Taxback. He has made it easy for me to make a smooth transition from being a Non-resident for tax filing (Sprintax) to Resident for tax filing (Taxback). The communications related to every document has been patiently explained to me no matter how many details I needed to know. You are doing a fantastic job Steven! Cheers to the Taxback Team! Thank you :)
