In this section you can see how you and your family are protected by the pension fund in case something happens to you.
If you become unable to earn, whether due to illness or an accident, your pension fund will support you with a disability pension and – if you have children – with disabled’s children’s pensions. The benefits will be provided in addition to the disability insurance.
In the event of your death, your spouse will be paid an annual pension. Most pension funds also pay benefits for life partners. However, most pension funds require life partners to be registered with them. If you live in a domestic partnership it is also important to check your order of beneficiaries and amend it if necessary. Your children receive an orphan's pension. This is paid out until they turn 18 – or until they complete their training or education (max. until age 25).
