Federal Pension Refund

Business Case

Indian employees had been working in Germany for approx. 60 months before they relocated back to India to continue working outside of the European Union. During the time they were employed in Germany the Indian workforce contributed to the German social security system.

Business Challenge

The Indian employees were not exempt from the German social security system and had actually been working for less than 60 months in Germany. They were now leaving Germany and would no longer stay in the European Union.

Our Approach

Counselhouse provided professional advisory services during the refund process, applied for the refund and negotiated with the authorities to obtain the best outcome for our clients. By leveraging our advisory services, the employees could claim back up to 9.95% of the gross salary they had contributed to the German social system.
