Property and life insurance

In addition to the statutory insurance schemes, there are many private insurance schemes in Germany.

The most common insurance policies include:

  • liability insurance,
  • home contents insurance,
  • occupational disability insurance,
  • life assurance,
  • motor vehicle insurance.

If you own a car or motorbike, it is mandatory to have motor vehicle insurance. Liability insurance is also very important. The policy will pay out if you or your under-age children cause unintentional injury to another person.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.
