The Hamburg-based insurance broker OA and Berger have specially opened a new Internet portal for the Rurup-rente. In July 2013, OA insurance brokers and Berger from Hamburg have expanded its field of business and opened a nationwide consulting and information portal for the base pension (colloquially known as “Rurup-rente”) on the Internet. Future consumers and financial services providers can have there provide information and advice on basic information and rates of the insurer. The portal of the ruerup-rente.com includes a comparison calculator for insurance rates, a tax calculator for the tax component and tariff information of the insurance companies. “Background to the opening of the portal was the confusion on the subject of Rurup in Germany.,” Sebastian Ohligschlager. “The base pension is highly complex due to their flexibility and the legislation in practice.
Even many insurance consultants are overwhelmed with the tariff details of insurers in everyday life here and focus often prefer to simpler products, such as the Riester pension. Therefore is to publicize it further our goal of the advantages of the Rurup-rente and also indicate to the stumbling blocks. With the base pension can provide is wonderful.” Currently, the portal is still in the start-up phase. Thus calculations of offers are already possible and also the tax burden can the interested consumer or consultants calculate directly online. However, the tariff details of all Rurup providers in Germany are stored, it is take but probably still quite a while.
“We have developed just a private rating, check rates and insurers. Us the evaluations by oKO-test, Stiftung Warentest, Bornberg and Franke often does not go far enough.”admits Sebastian Ohligschlager. “Aim of the portal is a regular traffic of 5-10,000 users per month”, so conducting business.

Because compared to the Riester pension base pension is still a shadowy existence.
