Compensation pension 

If the pension is received from the compensation authorities in Hannover, Munich or Saarburg, no life certificate is required any more. For Wiesbaden, you might have to declare that you want to participate in an automated data exchange. Other compensation authorities are still sending out life certificate forms to their pensionnaires once a year. Please not that it is required to fill out and return the form to the conpensation authority.
