If you meet the requirements for membership, the pension company will inform you of your membership number. You should specify these for each future contact with the utility. At the same time, you will receive your personal access data for the member portal. With this secure service, you can exchange messages and information with your contact person at the pension company and simulate your retirement pension online. At the same time, you have the option of encrypting your pension documents and simply archiving them electronically. The pension fund first needs some information for your registration as a member and the determination of contributions. You can enter these online in the member portal under portal.vstbh.de after the first registration with your access data. When you are appointed as a tax advisor, you will receive an information flyer from the Hessen Chamber of Tax Advisors, which will explain in detail how to obtain the online registration form. If you do not want to fill out the initial registration form online, you can download the blank form from the www.vstbh.de website under "Forms" to edit it offline. Alternatively, you can request this from the utility and have it sent by post. Tip: As of your registration, you can apply for the exemption from the compulsory insurance in the statutory pension insurance scheme in favour of the pension fund. You can obtain the required form for the exemption application via a link in the online registration form or under www.vstbh.de under "Forms". Please send it completed and signed to the utility. It supplements your application and forwards it to the German Pension Insurance Confederation.
