Membership in the Bavarian Pharmacists' Association; transmission of information

Bayerische Apothekerversorgung provides pension benefits in old age, in the event of occupational disability and to surviving dependents. For this purpose, it requires certain information from the new member.


The Bayerische Apothekerversorgung (BApV) is responsible for Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland.

The BApV is a public law institution with administrative autonomy and has the task of providing for its members in old age and in the event of occupational disability, as well as for the member's surviving dependents.

The pension scheme is part of the statutory pension scheme and thus the first pillar of old-age provision.

The members of the BApV acquire their pension entitlement by paying compulsory contributions and/or voluntary additional payments.

Compulsory membership in the BApV is linked to compulsory membership in a state chamber of pharmacists in the BApV's area of responsibility. Compulsory members of the BApV are therefore all compulsory members of the state chambers of pharmacists of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate or Saarland. Compulsory membership in the pension scheme thus begins at the same time as membership in a chamber of pharmacists in our area of responsibility.

In the case of pharmacy trainees, compulsory membership in the Versorgungswerk begins when they start working as a pharmacist in the area of responsibility of the BApV.

Membership is established by law as soon as the requirements are met; it is not necessary to conclude a contract for this purpose.

To verify compulsory membership, data must be submitted via the membership survey form.


  • Compulsory membership in one of the state chambers of pharmacists in Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate or Saarland
  • No occupational disability

Special feature for pharmacy trainees: For this group of persons, compulsory membership in the BApV already begins without chamber affiliation upon commencement of pharmaceutical activity in the area of responsibility of the BApV.


After registration in the professional chamber, the membership data are transmitted from the professional chamber to the BApV.

At the beginning of membership in the BApV, the new member must complete the membership survey form and send it to the BApV. The completed membership survey form (see under "Forms") can be sent by mail or electronically (see under "Online Procedure").
The survey form is required for further information relevant to membership, such as the amount of income subject to contributions, possible participation in the SEPA direct debit procedure, affiliation with another pension scheme of the profession.

The member will then receive a membership notice from the BApV by mail.
