  • you are currently covered by family insurance through your parents
  • or start an apprenticeship with the EWE Group.

Info on social security for young professionals

The nursing care insurance

With the health insurance, every trainee is also insured for long-term care. Regardless of whether the need for care arises at a younger age or at a later age, the insurance provides reliable protection. Information is available from BKK EWE Pflegekasse.

The pension insurance

The social security card with the pension insurance number can already be applied for before starting the training. We will be happy to help with this. The insurance periods are credited to a pension account at the German Pension Insurance. Those who attend school beyond the age of 17 should have the "Schulzeitenbescheinigung" issued. These periods can be saved on the pension account.

The accident insurance

If something happens during training at work or on work-related trips, or if an occupational illness occurs, accident insurance will pay out. Trainees are covered by statutory accident insurance from day one. The contributions for accident insurance are generally paid in full by the employer.

Any questions?

Whether you have questions about health insurance, our benefits or anything else you want to know - we'll be happy to help.
