  1. Retirement question - Combining American and German social security times

    My understanding was that the credits from the US will be added IF the German credits would not be enough. I have no clue if I would receive two pension amounts from both countries. Also, it is extremely complicated to get a hold of ssa.gov. I need to request information regarding some employers I worked for and which I don´t have written information, but the only way to do that is to create a sign in account with ssa.gov. But without having an address in the US I cannot do that and therefore request-change information.
  2. Hello beautiful members of Toytown! I have been a member for over 10 years now, and want to say Thank you to everyone who gave me advice on all kind of issues over the years! I have been a bit absent on here, but logged into Toytown at least once a month to see what is going on. Now I have a few questions about retirement in a couple of years. I am a German citizen, paid into the social security-retirement in Germany for about 10 years. Then I lived in the US for 20 years and paid into the social security-retirement there. Since 2011 I have been back in Germany, working.   My questions: Who do I contact to combine these times, and do I have to provide the German retirement place with all employers and addresses where I worked and lived in the US to combine retirement income? How does it exactly work? Anyone who has done that and can provide information about that?
