Frauen und Männer müssen nun zwei weitere Jahre bis 67 arbeiten, um Anspruch auf volle Rentenbezüge zu haben. In , the pension age increased from 60 to 62, and women and men must now work an extra two years up to 67 in order to qualify for a full pension.

Supervisory Board received pensions totalling EUR 52 thousand previous year: Supervisory Board received pensions totalling EUR 54 thousand previous year: Hinterbliebenenrente, die an einen Anspruchsberechtigten auszahlbar ist, der im Gegenzug auf einen Teil der jährlichen Rentenbezüge verzichtet;.

In einigen Ländern geht der neueste Trend dahin, das Renteneintrittsalter heraufzusetzen und die Rentenbezüge zu kürzen oder überhaupt nicht zu zahlen.

In certain countries, the latest trend is to increase the retirement age and to cut pensions, or even not to pay them at all. Die Rentenbezüge sollten im Postamt gezahlt werden, aber die Regierung gab den Postämtern genügende Fonds nicht, um diese Rentenbezüge zu zahlen. The pensions were to be paid at the post office but the government did not give the post offices enough funds to pay these pensions. We are also committed to better pensions for elderly women and wider access to high-quality affordable childcare to help give women access to the labour market.

I was therefore disappointed to see that there was a great demonstration of protest during this vote from European Union employees, whose future pension payments are to be reduced. For example, people with long contribution records may be eligible for a pension well before reaching the standard retirement age, but this is not a good reason to prevent them from remaining longer in the labour market and achieving even higher retirement incomes.

Das ist verfassungsrechtlich nicht zu beanstanden, soweit die Rentenansprüche aus unversteuertem Einkommen aufgebaut werden konnten oder nur der Teil der Rentenbezüge besteuert wird, der nicht auf Beiträgen beruht oder mit Beiträgen korreliert, die aus versteuertem Einkommen geleistet worden sind.

The provisions of the Retirement Income Act do not violate the principle of legitimate expectations, either. Durch die lebendigen Lebenszeugnisse wird aber auch deutlich, wie sehr sich die Altersversorgung geändert hat: Durch Anpassungen der Rentenbezüge an die Kinderzahl, durch Rentensenkungen, längere Lebensarbeitszeiten und vermehrte private Vorsorge.

This living testimony makes it clear, however, how much provision for old age has changed: In allen Mitgliedstaaten sind die Rentenbezüge nach wie vor von geschlechtsspezifischen Unterschieden geprägt: Frauen sind stärker von Armut betroffen und beziehen niedrigere Renten als Männer, weil sie weniger verdienen und aufgrund familiärer Verpflichtungen ein kürzeres Erwerbsleben haben.

Across Member States pension outcomes are marked by persistent gender differences, with women being more exposed to poverty and having lower pensions than men, due to lower salaries and shorter working lives linked to caring duties. For example, in many Member States people with long contribution records may be eligible for a pension well before reaching the standard retirement age, even though age in itself is not always a good reason to prevent people from remaining longer in the labour market and achieving even higher retirement incomes.

English Neither are recent trends in pension income particularly reassuring. English Direct deposit of paychecks and government checks such as military, retirement benefits and social security. German In dem Bericht werden zwei Probleme hervorgehoben: English The report stresses two points: German Frauen und Männer müssen nun zwei weitere Jahre bis 67 arbeiten, um Anspruch auf volle Rentenbezüge zu haben.

English In , the pension age increased from 60 to 62, and women and men must now work an extra two years up to 67 in order to qualify for a full pension. English received pensions totaling EUR 55 thousand previous year: The Chancellors freedom to shape his cabinet is only limited by some constitutional provisions: The Chancellor has to appoint a Minister of Defence, a Minister of Economic Affairs and a Minister of Justice and is implicitly forbidden to head one of these departments himself, as the constitution invests these ministers with some special powers: The Minister of Defence is commander-in-chief during peacetime only in wartime the Chancellor becomes supreme commander , the Minister of Economic Affairs may veto decisions by the Federal Cartel Office and the Minister of Justice appoints and dismisses the Public Prosecutor General.

If two ministers disagree on a particular point, the cabinet resolves the conflict by a majority vote Kollegialprinzip or principle of deference or the Chancellor decides the case himself. This often depends on the Chancellor's governing style. The Chancellor has to appoint one of the cabinet ministers as Vice Chancellor , who may deputise for the Chancellor in his or her absence. In coalition governments the Vice Chancellor is usually the highest ranking minister of the second biggest coalition party.

If the Chancellor dies or is unwilling or unable to act as Chancellor after the end of his or her term, until a new Chancellor has been elected, the Vice Chancellor becomes Acting Chancellor until the election of a new Chancellor by the Bundestag, who than has to form a new government as yet, this has happened once: On 7 May Chancellor Willy Brandt resigned and declared his refusal to act as Chancellor until his successors election.

The Chancellor is in charge of the government's administrative affairs, which are usually delegated to the Chief of staff of the Chancellery , who is usually also appointed as minister for special affairs.

Details are laid down in the government's rules for internal procedures Geschäftsordnung. These state, for example, that the cabinet is quorate only if at least half of the ministers including the chair the Chancellor or in his or her absence the Vice Chancellor are present.

The cabinet regularly convenes Wednesday mornings in the Chancellery. According to established practice, decisions on important armaments exports are made by the Federal Security Council Bundessicherheitsrat , a cabinet committee chaired by the Chancellor.
