Sickness benefit is a payment in lieu of remuneration to which you are entitled as an insured person if you are unable to work for a longer period of time due to illness. Social security contributions will continue to be paid. In return, your health insurance fund reports the period of sick pay to the pension insurance fund and pays pension insurance contributions on your behalf. However, these contributions are lower than they would be if you were working normally. Therefore, your pension amount will also be lower later on if you receive sickness benefit for a longer period of time.
