Insurance Periods

Every month during which you paid either a mandatory or voluntary contribution is considered an insurance period. This and all other periods have to be credited on your account with the insurance carrier.

In addition you may receive credit for certain periods even if you have not made any contributions. For example, you get credit for time spent on raising children, caring for relatives or for time spent on professional education and training. You will also receive credit for time periods during which you received disability benefits, unemployment compensations and served in the military.

Under certain provisions a person can receive substitute periods, which will be credited to his or her account without the person having to pay the contributions.

Are you certain that all your time periods have been credited to your account?

Please appoint us to look into these matters for you so that you will receive full and proper credits for your time periods. They will increase the yields of your pension.
