Mayer Brown Brochure
Occupational pensions in Germany have long been more than just a discretionary benefit granted by employers. Today, an efficient occupational pension plan is an essential component of retirement security – something that is necessary to enable pensioners to maintain their standard of living after retirement. Experience also shows that an attractive total compensation package, including a strong pension plan, is a key factor in attracting high performers. For employers to succeed in the War for Talent it is therefore imperative that they achieve the best possible balance between being able to offer attractive benefit packages, financing those benefits and managing the underlying risks. Our multi-disciplinary German Pension Products Group supports employers and providers in responding to the numerous and complex legal questions arising in this context.
