Notarisation of German Life Certificates

With effect from this July, the AJR will be recognised as an 'official British office' and will be able to notarise for AJR members life certificates issued by the German pension authority, the Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund, for social security and Altersrente pensions.

In order to avoid complications and delays with payments, members wishing to have their life certificates notarised by the AJR must present themselves, together with their passport (or some widely accepted form of identification), at AJR Head Office, at our Day Centre in Cleve Road, or at a regional group meeting. Home visits can also be arranged by contacting Head Office.

Please note that an AJR representative will be unable to sign the life certificate without the necessary paperwork and identification.

For the purpose of having their forms legalised, members can continue to visit the German embassy as well as police stations, financial institutions, physicians, rabbinates and notaries public.

In addition to all lump sum payments and pensions from Austria, the AJR is authorised to sign life certificates issued by the Düsseldorf and Hesse German compensation authorities and the Hamburg social security office. The AJR is further recognised by the Claims Conference as auithorised to notarise life certificates and applications to the Article II and Hardship Funds.
