In voluntary pension splitting, the pension entitlements of one spouse are split between the two spouses. The idea is to balance out the financial loss that results from time spent raising children. It’s mostly women who benefit from this partnership-based solution. What do you do, though, if you can’t agree on it as a couple?
When couples are expecting their first child, it’s important to clarify how the baby will be looked after. To do this, a detailed discussion is needed between the parents-to-be.
“Digitisation, working from home and a high workload put a lot of people, particularly single parents, under extreme time pressure,” explains Martina Hubner.
To be able to manage the balance between family life and work, circumstances need to be created in which the family needs and the requirements of day-to-day working life are able to be reconciled as well as possible.
