  • Where to find the appropriate rules?

it is in the "law for the improvement of occupational retirement provision" (BetrAVG) § 1a Abs. 1a.

  • My boss says he needs to pay me any grants. His justification: The old operating agreement applies more. Is that true?

Yes. According to § 26a of the grant for deferred compensation agreements that have been concluded prior to 1/1/2019 applies only to 1.1.2022.

  • My boss pays so far already a grant. The new amount comes on top of it?

That depends. If the boss has tied his previous grant to the social insurance Savings, he can charge the new duty to grant the previous amount. The existing subsidy is already at least 15 percent, there is no more money.

If the previous grant was not tied to the Saving of the social insurance, has to pay the chief starting in 2022 in addition – as some lawyers argue, anyway.

  • I earn over the income threshold for the health insurance, but among those of pension insurance. How much grant am I entitled to?

Check this article, and also with the "law for the improvement of occupational retirement provision" (BetrAVG), if you meet all the rules. This is the case, then you would point your boss to the fact. The employer remains at his attitude, you must inform the works Council or turn to a lawyer.

  • I get the grant and my savings is to increase contribution. Have to pay my boss the grant to the higher post?

Yes. As long as your employer is saving through your savings contributions social security contributions he must pay 15 percent on the increased amount.

  • I run my direct insurance during the Parental leave, private more. I get the grant?

no, because then your employer saves social security contributions and must give you no subsidy.

  • grant the bAV with the Employer automatically attractive?

The Employer's contribution and the 2020 force reduction in health insurance contributions in Retirement to make the conversion of gross pay, at least, more attractive.
