Great at getting things “unstuck”

I submitted my paperwork months ago to the refund office in Berlin but my follow-up phone calls and messages went unanswered. I hired Germany Pension Refund and within a week they got in touch with the person who was assigned my case and asked for my refund to be approved. I was told it could take up to eight weeks for my refund to be processed but the money appeared in my account three weeks later. Highly recommend!


How to manually calculate my pension refund?


To manually calculate the amount of money you will get back if you claim a refund (eligibility given), is a simple formula: 


Your gross salary of every year you worked in Germany (up to a maximum equal to the cap) times the percentage in the corresponding year.

Add the sums together and you have your German pension refund amount.

But before you start looking up caps and percentages, simply use the free calculator that we've build just for you :).

Important Note:

The calculator does not serve as a guarantee to get a refund nor does it prove your eligibility. It is designed to help you calculate how much money you have contributed over the years. 


If you are eligible for a refund, we can help you get your money back.

Are You Eligible for a German Pension Refund?

If you are a non-European citizen, you could be eligible for reimbursement of your retirement insurance contributions paid while you worked in Germany.


If 24 months have passed since you left Germany, and you currently reside outside of the EU, EEA, CH, or UK you could qualify to get that money back.

Save time and any potential complications, the fastest way to get your money back is the Claim your refund online form.

Having worked with pension refund team, I found them responsible, reliable, and most importantly committed to what they say from day one to the end of the process. I highly recommend this fantastic team to everyone who seeks to do pension refunds and is looking for a fast and reliable way to do that. Special thanks to Johannes and Anna to help me throughout this journey especially during these tough circumstances due to the Covid pandemic. This job wouldn't have been done without their support and help.
