Apply for payment relief for insured persons with the Artists' Social Security Fund


In principle, the Künstlersozialkasse is obliged to collect all contribution claims on time and in full.

If you are in arrears with your contribution payments, you can apply to the Künstlersozialkasse for payment relief. The type and duration of the payment relief depends on your individual situation.

  • Immediate full settlement of your premium arrears would be associated with considerable hardship.
  • The payment of your premium arrears is not jeopardized by the instalment payment or deferral.
  • If you apply for remission or partial remission: Settlement of the premium arrears would be unreasonable.

Which documents are required depends on the type and term of the payment facility.

If you are applying for an installment payment or deferral with a short term:

  • informal application for payment facilitation

If you are applying for an installment payment or deferral with a longer term or another payment facility:
