Apply for tax allowances for survivors


If you have been granted current survivors' benefits, e.B in accordance with the Federal Pension Act or from the statutory accident insurance, you can apply for a lump sum. You will also receive this lump sum if the right to the remuneration is suspended or if you have received a severance payment in the form of a lump sum for the entitlement to the remuneration.

Survivors' benefits are paid in accordance with one of the following laws:

  • the Federal Pensions Act or any other law that declares the provisions of the Federal Pension Act on Survivors' Pensions to be applicable mutatis mutandis, or
  • the provisions on statutory accident insurance, or
  • the provisions of civil service law applicable to the survivors of an official who died as a result of an accident at work, or
  • the provisions of the Federal Compensation Act on Compensation for Damage to Life, Body or Health.

In the case of survivors' pensions, proof must be provided by official documents (e.B pension notice from the pension office, the competent compensation authority or an institution of the statutory accident insurance).
The pension notice of an institution of the statutory pension insurance is not sufficient as proof.

  • The processing time depends on the processing status in the respective responsible tax office
