Company Pension Scheme

As an alternative to receiving a lifelong pension starting at the age of 62, this company pension scheme model offers the option to cash out up to 30% of the capital as a lump sum at the beginning of the payout phase. With the "Neodirect Company Pension Scheme +", there's also the option to include a capital choice right in the contract, allowing for the entire capital to be paid out at once.

During the accumulation phase, this pension plan provides tax exemption and additional savings on social security contributions, enhancing its attractiveness. However, pension payments made during the payout phase are fully taxable at the recipient's income tax rate. Moreover, contributions for statutory nursing care and health insurance must be deducted from these payments. Therefore, the "Neodirect Company Pension Scheme +" is particularly beneficial when paired with private health insurance, as this combination eliminates the need for social security contributions in retirement, providing significant financial advantages in your later years.


Your reward for the old days

The benefits of opting for a company pension scheme extend beyond simple retirement savings. Here are some enhanced and translated features for English speakers considering their options:

  • Significant Tax and Social Security Savings: This plan offers notable advantages in terms of reducing your tax burden and social security contributions. By investing in this pension scheme, you can enjoy more of your hard-earned money both now and in retirement.

  • Protection from Seizure in Case of Unemployment Benefits (Hartz IV) and Bankruptcy: Assets saved in this pension scheme are safeguarded against claims from creditors, providing financial security even in challenging times. This means that in the event of receiving Hartz IV benefits or declaring bankruptcy, your pension savings remain untouched, ensuring your future financial stability.

  • Free Transferability (Spousal Coverage): The plan allows for the free transferability of benefits to your spouse or registered partner, ensuring they are financially secure in the event of your passing. This feature provides peace of mind, knowing your loved ones are taken care of.

  • Capital Choice Option: With the capital choice right, you have the flexibility to opt for a lump-sum payment instead of regular pension payments when you retire. This option offers the freedom to manage your retirement savings in a way that best suits your needs and lifestyle.

  • Portability with Employer Change: One of the key advantages of this pension scheme is its portability. Should you change employers, you can easily transfer your accumulated pension savings to your new employer's pension scheme. This feature ensures that your retirement planning remains uninterrupted, regardless of your career moves.

These expanded benefits highlight the comprehensive nature of the company pension scheme, designed to provide financial security, flexibility, and peace of mind throughout your working life and into retirement.

5 Essential Tips for Company Pension Schemes

1. Start Early: The earlier you begin contributing to a company pension scheme, the more time your money has to grow through compound interest. Even small contributions can amount to significant savings over the years, providing a more comfortable retirement.

2. Understand Your Options: Company pension schemes can vary significantly in terms of benefits and conditions. Take the time to understand the different types of plans available to you, including defined benefit and defined contribution plans, and choose the one that best fits your long-term financial goals.

3. Maximize Employer Contributions: Many employers offer to match your pension contributions to a certain percentage. Always aim to contribute at least enough to get the full match, as this is essentially free money that can significantly boost your retirement savings.

4. Consider the Tax Implications: Contributions to company pension schemes are often tax-efficient, reducing your taxable income. Understand how your contributions affect your taxes and take advantage of any tax relief available to maximize your savings.

5. Review and Adjust Regularly: Your retirement needs and financial situation can change over time. Review your pension plan annually to ensure it still aligns with your retirement goals. Consider increasing your contributions if your financial situation improves, and always keep an eye on the performance of your pension fund.

How do I know if I'm eligible for my employer's pension scheme?

Eligibility criteria can vary depending on the employer's policy. Typically, eligibility is based on factors such as length of service, employment status (full-time or part-time), and sometimes age. It's best to consult your HR department or employee handbook for specific eligibility requirements.


Can I opt out of a company pension scheme?

What happens to my pension if I change jobs?

You have several options if you change jobs: leave the pension with your previous employer until retirement (frozen pension), transfer the value to a new employer's scheme, or move it into a personal pension plan. Each option has pros and cons, so it's advisable to seek financial advice to make the best decision for your situation.

How are my pension contributions invested? 

Pension contributions are typically invested in a mix of assets, including stocks, bonds, and cash, managed by professional fund managers.
