Membership information

Do you work as a physician in Schleswig-Holstein or you currently do not practise but live in Schleswig-Holstein as your principal residence? Then we look forward to welcome you as our compulsory member.

As a member of the pension fund, you pay contributions to a care system specially tailored to the needs of the medical profession.

You will get a compulsory membership release if you already accomplished the standard retirement age or if you unable to work when registering with the Schleswig-Holstein Medical Association. Lifelong civil servants and professional soldiers get an exemption exempt from compulsory membership.

In special exceptional cases you may be exempted from compulsory membership in the pension fund.

Compulsory membership in the pension fund ends when you leave the Medical Association of Schleswig-Holstein or become a civil servant for life or a professional soldier. In certain cases you may voluntarily continue your membership in our pension fund.

After the end of your membership, we will of course continue the entitlement based on the contributions you have made so far. In the future, it will continue to participate in the dynamisation decided by the Supervisory Board.

If you become a compulsory member of another pension fund, you also have the option of transferring the contributions paid to our pension fund to your new pension fund. The prerequisite is that you have not yet reached the age of 50 and have not paid contributions to our pension fund for more than 96 months. With the transition, all rights and obligations from your membership relationship with our pension fund expire. You can find the download of the corresponding transfer application below.

We have put together all the information about membership in our pension fund and the transfer of contributions for you in our information sheets – download below.

We offer our help regarding all questions about membership and will be happy to advise you.
