Abbreviations explanation on Anmeldung form

9 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

Could someone clarify what do these abbreviations below mean? I am filling out an Anmeldung application for Munich and need to pick something from these but don't know what they mean (I have an idea, but want to be 100% sure):

 

Marital Status:

LD, VH, VW, GS, LP, LV, LA.

 

Religion:

EV, RF, RK, AK, IS, VD

 

Thanks!!!

Marital Status:

LD = ledig (unmarried)

VH = verheiratet (married)

VW = verwitwet (widowed)

GS = geschieden (divorced)

LP = eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaft (civil union)

LV = ???

LA = ???

 

Religion (leave this blank unless you are keen on paying Church Tax!):

EV = evangelisch-lutherisch (Lutheran)

RF = reformiert (Reformed Churches)

RK = römisch-katholisch (Roman Catholic)

AK = altkatholisch (Old Catholic)

IS = israelitische Kultusgemeinde (Jewish)

VD = verschiedene (miscellaneous)

 

However, there is really no need to fill in the form in advance, the (more or less) friendly government official at your town/city hall will ask you for the relevant information and fill the form in on their computer.

 

Edit: what the others said

Just something else, dc2009. If you select a religion you maybe expected to pay a type of church tax (Kirchensteuer). If you're okay with that, go ahead. But if you want to save a few euros and not pay the tax, select keine Religion.

 

Perhaps things are different now regarding this, so maybe some other TTers can elaborate.
