Rule of thumb for retirement: 88 to 98 percent of the last net income

"How much money do I need in retirement to be able to live a good life financially?"
Many people ask themselves this question. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research and the Ruhr University in Bochum provide a clue.
According to their calculations, the net income in old age must be between 88 and 98 percent of the last net salary. In reality, however, the average today is 70 percent. 

The annual pension information shows how high the statutory pension could be in the future. At first glance, however, the amount appears to be more generous than it actually is. For one thing, taxes and other contributions are deducted from the stated pension. On the other hand, inflation is likely to noticeably reduce the purchasing power of the money. Since pensions will rise less than wages in the future and the gap between pensions and earned income will widen, it will become more important to have additional retirement coverage for old age.

The simplest of all subsidies to use: the Basisrente

The statutory pension merely provides a basic level of coverage. There is only one thing left to do - start saving now. Because there is already a state-subsidized pension that everyone can benefit from: the Basisrente.
The most important facts:
  • The subsidization of the basic pension works via a tax benefit that increases from year to year until contributions are 100 percent deductible.
  • In 2022, single persons can claim contributions of up to 25,639 Euros for tax purposes (married couples and registered partners assessed jointly for tax purposes: 51,278 Euros).
  • In total, up to several thousand Euros in state subsidies are possible.
  • With a good solution, savers can decide how they want to invest their money, for example in physical gold to protect against inflation, in a conventional investment, in real assets or in funds to take advantage of the opportunities for returns on the stock market.
  • After retirement, savers will be able to choose whether and to what extent they want to benefit from the return opportunities of the stock market with a fund-based pension.
  • The tax savings from the Basisrente can be reinvested year after year, for example in a private pension insurance policy. In this way, assets can be built up that can be used flexibly as desired and can also be freely passed on to your heirs.
