  1. Hi everyone, I have been working in Germany for 5 years and have a Niederlassungserlaubnis.  I am going to take up a full-time job in Austria for a limited number of years, but want to keep my German address and commute a little. This should allow me to keep my German Niederlassungserlaubnis.   My questions are: 1. Health insurance: I am currently privately insured in Germany. After I change my job, do I have to continue paying for my private insurance in Germany? Given that my full-time job in Austria will cover health insurance already. What is the most cost effective way? 2. Pensions: What happens to the pension contributions that I have paid while working in Germany? 3. Second employment: I am trying to arrange a second employment contract with my current employer in Germany, in addition to my full-time job in Austria. As far as I understand, this is fine under Austrian law as long as the second employment does not exceed 8 hours a week. In this case, will my German employment contract still cover half of my German health insurance and other social insurance premium? What else should I pay attention to about having a cross-border second employment contract?   Many thanks! 
  2. Hi   I am newb here, and thanks for all your useful info here.   I had two telephone interviews in the UK with an internation company based in Ismaning and next week I will have a face to face interview. I have a master of computer science degree with 8 years of Oracle/ SQL server dba, data analysis and reporting /BI experience. So far that company is willing to pay 50000 euro + bonus +relocation package. I was told the income tax is very high in Germany, so do you think this salary is fair and enough for myself (married, but my wife is not with me at the moment)??   Thanks for yout time!!
  3. I needed an advice or perhaps someone with the similar situation can share their experience.. I was laid off by my previous company so I registered at the jobcenter and Mrs.A(contact person) asked regarding my job search profile and if I would like to move to another city and I suggested HAMBURG, Berlin and Hannover. After 1 month In unemployment benefit I found a new job in Hannover so I spoke again with Mrs.A regarding the job and also regarding the relocation cost whether it would be reimbursed or not.. She said it will be payed and asked me fill out „UMZUGKOSTENANTRAG“. Since I dont live in Hannover I was at my colleague apartment as he had a spare room. In the 3rd month after taking the job I got a call from Mrs.B that Mrs.A is retired and asked me regarding the relocation. I told her that I was still searching for an apartment in Hannover and I did not had any luck yet. After another 1 month of search I found the apartment and its ready to occupy from the next month. So, I filled out the form and then spoke directly in person with front-desk  at jobcenter and also with Mrs.B (over the phone) they both said to go ahead with the relocation and since it will take 3-4 weeks they asked me to pay for the relocation and they will reimburse later. So I paid for the relocation and moved to Hannover.  I got no response from the job center for another 2 months so I went directly to Hamburg spoke with them in person. Now Mrs.B also retired and so I spoke with Mrs.C she said that some documents were missing and hence they could not process the application. So I send them the missing documents. After 2 weeks I get a call from Mrs.C that relocation cost is rejected saying I had the opportunity to find a job in Hamburg and that I am financial stable and that it was with self-interest that I moved to Hannover hence the relocation cost is rejected. It made no sense to me had Mrs A told that relocation cost will not be reimbursed I would have never taken up the job in Hamburg itself and would have not gone through all that stress of packing and unpacking stuff and waste my 10 personal holidays and also I payed 800€ to do the paint job and other things to my old apartment. Any help or suggestions would be really helpful as i have paid over 2000€ for relocation.
