One should know that shaping life in older days depends on drawn pension benefits.
State pensions are secure but the level show a substantial drop and therefore growing pension gaps should and must be closed by occupational pension. But the occupational pension has a highly complex law so that even an informed citizen is not able to understand it. A specific background knowledge is needed to understand concepts like deferred compensation, direct insurance, “Riester-pension” (retirement policy), pension funds, portability, non-forfeiture, contribution commitment with minimum benefit or the duty to make adjustments.
It can be assumed with certainty that a careless handling of pension scheme will have negative effects later on.
Labor law in the case of occupational pension holds many dangers, which – insofar as they are not recognized – may lead to massive financial disadvantages for companies, directors or employees.
