Who will Pay my Pension some Day?
Jan 27, 2022 from 02:00 to 04:00

As a researcher, you need mobility. You have to be flexible in moving between different countries in order to focus on your research interests and to pursue your individual career. When changing from one job to another, you are registered with several different pension schemes of all pillars. Therefore, questions about your pension arise because the issue is not easy to understand. This information event is designed to help you gain a better understanding of the pension system in Germany, your pension entitlements and refund opportunities. You will also learn how to find out about the various European pension sources and you will be introduced to the information portal “FindyourPension”. If you are interested in taking part in this event via zoom, please send an email to welcome@uni-bonn.de by January 24.
