Zur Berücksichtigung von Kindern bei umlagefinanzierter Alterssicherung
According to the ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany it is unconstitutional if members of the mandatory insurance against long-term care have to pay contributions that are not conditional on the number of their children. This article takes a critical view on child-related contribution payments. It is argued that such a policy is not well targeted and not well founded in welfare economics.
