In December, pensioners also benefit from the 300 euro energy flat rate.

Does it go away immediately after the transfer?

This applies to households.

Update from December 21, 2022:

In the meantime, the 300 euros of the energy flat rate was paid to many pensioners in Germany in December - but some are looking into the tube.

There is more good news: after the 300 euros of the energy flat rate, many pensioners will receive another subsidy in 2023.

First report from December 16, 2022:

Hamburg – A measure for some relief in times of the onerous energy crisis: Pensioners also get the 300 euro energy flat rate.

It is intended to absorb additional costs that arise as a result of the energy crisis, as summarized by 24hamburg.de.

In the system of statutory pension insurance, everyone has the option of a one-time payment of the energy lump sum.

You don't even have to apply for it.

The money, which should end up in the accounts of German pensioners by bank transfer by the beginning of January 2023, will be made automatically - and independently of the payment of the pension.

Many questions have now been clarified.

Consumer guides point out what to do if the 300 euro energy flat rate is not paid out and also draw attention to a factor that can ensure that some retirees can even receive a payment of 600 euros.

However, one question still remains unanswered: Can the energy flat rate for pensioners actually be seized?

300 euros energy flat rate: what the German pension insurance says about an attachment

According to information from the German pension insurance, the transfer of the energy flat rate is the responsibility of the

pension service of Deutsche Post AG

, the

German pension insurance Knappschaft Bahn See

and the

agricultural old-age fund

.

As was the case with the energy lump sum paid to employees in September, the energy lump sum paid to pensioners must also be taxed.

19.7 million times - all pensioners in Germany should receive the grant by January 2023 at the latest.

As a result of the pensioner energy flat rate, the federal government is once again making large sums of money available: this time around six billion euros.

But in case of doubt, could it be possible that the profit from the 300 euro energy flat rate is gone again immediately?

Another uncertainty could worry retirees already fearing a nasty energy tax scam.

The German pension insurance clarifies: "The energy price flat rate for pensioners is not subject to seizure", writes the organization of the statutory social insurance and thus also takes away any fears from indebted pensioner households.
