When should you apply for your pension?

You must submit your application for an old-age pension from the statutory pension insurance (GRV) at the latest at the end of the third month after fulfilling the eligibility requirements. Otherwise you could lose your entitlement. Details on this can be found in Social Security Code 6.
If you apply late, you will only receive your pension from the SPS from the month of application. The details for the old-age pension of the professional pension funds are regulated in the respective statutes, which you can also view on the internet.
