If you are no longer able to pursue the medical profession for health reasons, the Ärzteversorgung Niedersachsen offers you financial support.
You are entitled to an invalidity pension if:
- you are no longer able to practice your medical profession due to a physical infirmity or weakness of your physical or mental powers,
- you have ceased all your medical activity,
- the incapacity to work lasts longer than 90 days and
- you have made at least one contribution.
In addition to your actually acquired increases, the Ärzteversorgung Niedersachsen grants you a calculation period for the period from the beginning of your incapacity to the age of 60 years.
Start of pension
The pension payment begins with the termination of medical activity if the application is submitted within six months thereafter; otherwise with the month of application.
