Social Security And Divorce

In the case of a divorce the German Social Security Administration will in general apply the rule of equalization. This means that the pension entitlements (payouts) of both spouses will be combined and then split in half with each spouse receiving an equal amount of pension.

This is a complex and far-reaching procedure because the one spouse with the higher entitlement will have to give up a certain percentage of the pension while the spouse with the lower pension will receive more than was originally scheduled.

If you are divorced we will assist you in making sure that the procedure of equal distribution has been done correctly regardless whether you had to give up a portion of your pension or gained a certain amount.
