Künstlersozialkasse; filing of claims in insolvency proceedings

The KSK registers its own claims in writing with the insolvency administrator:

  • The KSK states the reason and the amount of the claim.
  • The KSK encloses the notices from which the claim is derived.
  • The insolvency administrator examines all claims at a review meeting. The KSK monitors whether its claim is entered in the insolvency table.
  • The KSK can subsequently correct the amount of the claim.


Please notify KSK immediately of the opening of insolvency proceedings.
