Artists' social insurance; notification in the event of a change in contributions for health and long-term care insurance
The Künstlersozialkasse can only pay you the correct subsidy if it knows how much your contributions are for private or voluntary statutory health and long-term care insurance.
As a gainfully self-employed artist or journalist, you are entitled to subsidies from the Künstlersozialkasse (KSK) under certain conditions. The subsidies relate to contributions for your private or voluntary statutory health and long-term care insurance.
You may be entitled to these subsidies if you are
- are subject to compulsory insurance via the KSK and
- are exempt from compulsory statutory health and long-term care insurance, or
- do not have access to statutory insurance.
The amount of your subsidy depends, among other things, on the amount of your contributions to your
- private or
- voluntary statutory health and long-term care insurance.
The insurance companies determine the amount of the contributions. The KSK needs up-to-date information about your contributions for these insurances. Otherwise, the KSK may calculate the amount of your provisional subsidy incorrectly.
When the KSK makes its final annual calculation of your subsidy, you may be required to make additional payments or claim back. By reporting the current information, you can avoid particularly high reclaims or back payments.
- You are currently eligible for subsidies via the KSK
- The contributions for your private or voluntary statutory insurance have changed.
If the contributions to your private or voluntary statutory health or long-term care insurance change, you will receive a corresponding letter from your insurance company.
- Send a copy of this letter to the KSK.
- If you have family members who are also insured with you, also submit a copy of the changed contribution amount for the family members.
- You will receive written confirmation from the KSK. If necessary, you will also receive a new contribution notice.
Notify KSK immediately of any change in your contributions to your private or voluntary statutory health and long-term care insurance.
Depending on workload, usually 4 weeks.
Detailed information on how to file an appeal can be found in the notice.
