I would recommend this company to anyone
I’m so pleasantly surprised with my experience. The refund calculator was spot on for estimating my refund. As for the process, I only had to provide the requested documentation and they handled everything else. I submitting my docs in March 2022 and received my refund in November 2022. Excellent experience. I would recommend this company to anyone. Thank you again.

Thank you Johannes & team for getting back my refund! I had been delaying to get back my refund for a few years but if i had known about their service, i would have gone for it immediately! After working with them, i realised that it takes a lot of time to "chase", and communicate with the relevant parties at the office of the German Pension Insurance, hence it saved me a lot of time and headache to deal with it. I would highly recommend to get back your refund with the team here at Germany Pension Refund! Cheers & enjoy the weekend!
