Every member of the Apothekerversorgung is entitled to a retirement pension for life when they reach the age of eligibility for the standard retirement pension under the general statutory pension scheme (retirement age). Your age of retirement depends on your year of birth. Please see the table opposite to determine your own personal retirement age. Of course you can also opt to draw your pension earlier. If you were already a member of a pension fund before 1 January 2012 you can apply for your retirement pension from age 60; if you joined later you can apply from age 62. However, it is not possible to draw your retirement pension early without deductions.
