Company Pension Schemes

Remember your first day at your new company, when they showed you around

and probably gave you some materials to take home?

Well, within those brochures there should have been some input regarding

the benefits being offered by the company, be it for pension or further coverage. 

As a matter of fact, most expats coming to Germany are not aware that companies in Germany are compelled to offer a company pension scheme and that you as an employer have the right to request having one set into place. 

Why?

Same reason as to why further provisioning is needed for retirement.

The contributions for the statutory system will rarely be enough, that is,

if you qualify to receive them at all.
