The compensation pensions under the Federal Compensation Act (BEG) are increased by 7.3% retroactively to 01.01.2019 in line with the adjustment of the salaries and pensions of federal civil servants.
The increased pension benefits will be paid out for the first time for the month of May 2019, which will already be paid out at the end of April due to the advance payment method. At the same time as the payments for May, the supplementary pension payments for the period January to April 2019 will also be made.
All pension beneficiaries will shortly receive written notification of the amount of the newly determined pensions. At the same time, they will receive an information sheet on the processing of their personal data by the compensation authority and their rights in this regard.
