The pension information contains information about the expected amount of your standard old-age pension, a forecast of the pension you will receive if you continue to work, information on the amount of your reduced earning capacity pension, details of the earliest possible start date for early retirement pensions, including details of any pension reductions, details of the widow's or widower's pension your partner will receive if you die, details of contributions paid to date to the statutory pension insurance scheme, among other things, notes and information on the prerequisites for all old-age pensions, on how to apply for a pension, on additional earnings, on the insurance history, on private old-age provision, on taxation, on information and advice options and on pensioners' health insurance, if no account clarification has yet been carried out: information on which periods have not yet been clarified (these are periods of which the pension insurance fund does not know whether they can be taken into account for your later pension), an overview of the insurance periods saved, an overview of the values and factors used to calculate your personal earning points and your standard old-age pension. Note: The pension information is not the same as the pension information (often referred to as "Rentenbescheid"), which you receive every year from the age of 27. The pension information letter provides very comprehensive information about other pension entitlements. As soon as you reach the age of 55, you will automatically receive pension information every 3 years instead of pension information. However, you can also request the information if you are younger.
