No hassle on my side other than filling a few forms and sharing some documents

I was incredibly pleased with the Germany Pension Refund teams support in getting a partial refund of my German pension contributions. I had completely written it off until I learned about Germany Pension Refund's service offerings. Their service offering helped me secure the refund with almost no hassle on my side other than filling a few forms and sharing some documents.They took care of the rest. My lead was super responsive, very knowledgeable and accurate in their communication and kept me updated on the process at every step of the way. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering getting back some of their money back from their assignments in Germany. Thank you Julia and team for your support!

Money credited to my Indian account in 3 months

After making an enquiry, I got an email from Christian. He explained the process and asked for some basic documentation.
He kept me updated on the progress without me having to send any reminders and I got the money credited to my India account in about 3 months time from the day we started.

 Delivered on everything they promised

You can absolutely trust this company. They are honest, professional, communicative and delivered on everything they promised. My refund took longer than expected because of the German govt., but they kept in touch with me throughout, and ensured everything was successfully processed in the end. I cannot recommend them enough, especially given how frightening it can be to trust an overseas company with a financial transaction such as this.
