Checking in on a regular basis and nudging the pension office during the waiting period

Julia with German Pension Refund is absolutely excellent!! She made the process so simple for me, providing clear instructions and translations of all German paperwork, checking in with me on a regular basis and nudging the pension office during the waiting period. It took about 7 months from start to finish for me to receive my refund but at no fault of Julia or the company. The pension offices in Berlin are understaffed and overwhelmed (of course), and she continued to ensure me that all was well and that it would arrive eventually. I highly recommend using German Pension Refund! Thank you Julia!

Periodic updates on the progress

Johannes and Germany Pension Refund made the process of getting me and my wife's pension refunds clear, simple, and easy! I really appreciated the periodic updates on the progress of our paperwork through the system, especially since one of our refunds took an unusually long time at the desk of the pension officer.
