Up-coming events

Good to Know - The German Social Security System

Germany has a reputation for having one of the best social security systems in the world. The social security system is based on five pillars: Health insurance, Long-term care insurance, pension insurance, unemployment insurance and accident insurance. But, how does the system work? Which insurances are available for international researchers being employed or having a scholarship? What are the benefits of statutory health insurance? What to consider when seeing a doctor? What additional private insurances would be beneficial for international researchers? All these questions will be addressed in this information event and there will be enough time for answering your personal questions.

Good to Know - German Taxes in a Nutshell

Depending on their source of income, international researchers living in Germany can be subject to German income tax. Hence this information session will give an overview of the most important aspects of the German income tax for expats and try to tackle the most common questions arising like: Do I have to pay income taxes? Do I need to make an income tax declaration? When do l have to file my tax return and how? Do I also have to pay taxes in my home country? A Q&A session will be allocated at the end so as to tend to your personal questions. You are most welcome to send in any specific questions or areas you are interested prior to the session.
