Great end-to-end service

Chris took care the entire end-to-end communication with the German Pension Office. Thanks to his persistence with the officials and patience with myself I received the money. He managed also situations in which the officials messed up my banking details. Thanks a lot for this, I am sure that with my non-existent German skills I would have never gotten through this process. Great service, already recommended you to my colleagues.

Reliable and successful support

Was skeptical at the beginning about this service but a Skype call convinced me about the authenticity. After the initial check, the Refund team helped me through each step of the application. Result: I received 2.3 years of pension payments back. Thank you! I am now definitely a #Happy australian camper 😉

Easy like sunday morning…

Worked in Germany as Expat and did not know that it is possible to apply for the refund of pension contributions. Really liked Chris as he is very service oriented. Questions got answered within hours and I felt taken care of and informed during the 3 months it took to get the payback. You can expect super friendly German native to assist you during the refund process. Thumbs Up! You guys are awesome! Expect some referrals.
