Living in Germany, pension from Belgium or the Netherlands: Energy price flat rate (EPP)

11. January 2023

If you live in Germany and exclusively receive pension benefits from the Netherlands or Belgium (this also applies to WIA or WAO benefits), you can apply for the energy price flat rate (EPP) from 9 January 2023.

The application form is now available on the Knappschaft Bahn See website.

If you also receive a German pension, the EPP was already paid out automatically via the pension insurance provider in December.
Pensioners who still work in Belgium or the Netherlands in addition to their pension can apply for the allowance via their German tax return or via Knappschaft Bahn See.
