  1. Hi there! My wife and I are thinking of leaving Germany, maybe for good, and we're wondering what happens to the money paid into the Künstlersozialkasse (KSK) if we do...   When we deregister (Abmeldung) from Germany, do we lose access to all those contributions? What if we came back and registered again - could we pick up our KSK payments (and contributions)?   I see there's a way to move abroad for work, up to 24 months and keep up your KSK contributions but that seems to hinge on the fact that you still count as being a resident of Germany i.e. are still registered here. Outside of this arrangement (if you leave for another reason, are gone for more than 2 years, or never come back), you can't maintain your insurances through the KSK. Does that mean you lose all that money? Thanks in advance for the help! PS I'm new here, so sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere - I couldn't find any answers by searching. Happy to check out other threads if you have recommendations
