  1. Betriebliche Altersvorsorge as a US citizen

      RÜRUP is well possible for US-nationals living in Germany because during duration you can't remove capital out of it...which is one of the requirements accoding to the German-US-agreement.  RIESTER is a different matter entirely, because there you can - albeit with penalties - retrieve your capital during duration/before pension-age. The jury is still out if this is sufficient and US-De agreements to make it free of tax-reporting requirements in the US. Therefore the priority ranking of recommendation for US-Expats in Germany is - bAV/company pension (provided you are an employee - RÜRUP pension for all others.   Cheerio
