Reduced earning capacity pension
If you are no longer able to work for health reasons, you can apply for a pension for full disability in Germany.
If you can work less than 3 hours a day, you are completely disabled. If you can work more than 3 hours but less than 6 hours a day, you will only receive a partial disability pension.
Previously, attempts were made to improve the situation through medical or vocational rehabilitation
if this is not possible, an appraisal is requested to check how much one can still work
you have to be insured with the pension provider for 5 years
of the 5 years you must have paid at least 3 years into the pension insurance
