How much pension do I get as a housewife?

The requirements for a statutory pension for housewives do not differ from those for all other persons. However, mothers receive a credit of up to 3 years per child for bringing up children from the statutory pension insurance (colloquially: mothers’ pension).
Each year of child-raising time improves your later monthly pension entitlement by about 32 euros. If your offspring was born before 1992, the SPS will credit you with up to 2.5 years of child-raising time per child. If a child was born in 1992 or later, up to 3 years per child will be credited. In addition, regardless of the year of birth of the child, you will be credited with a maximum of ten years of child-raising periods.
