Support funds

The pension insurance providers have set up a support fund from which financial support can be provided to pension recipients/insured persons in particularly deserving cases, e.g. in order to acquire a special bed for a disabled person.

The pension recipient must submit a claim for receipt of financial aid from the support fund.

Please note that this is a voluntary benefit provided by the pension insurance organisations; your individual family, income and asset situation will be taken into account when deciding on your eligibility.

You have no automatic legal entitlement to receive support from the fund.
