Pension and stopping work

I worked last year, was looking for a job, didn't find anything and now for health reasons am unlikely to find anything within the next few months (part time to fit around childcare and hospital appointments etc).

I need to transfer my pension fund out of publica but am not sure of the benefits/disadvantages of the options.

As far as I can understand, I can transfer all of it into a bank account that I can't touch until retirement or until I do find a new job when I could transfer it to the new pension scheme.

or I can continue a life/invalidity insurance with the Stiftung Auffangeinrichtung BVG. I'm not quite sure what this is, do I have to pay into it regularly or do they simply hold the pension account money and if I don't die then the money is never seen again? Or do you get the amount you paid in back when you reach retirement age? I've read their reglement and it's no clearer!

Re: Pension and stopping work

I'm sorry, dragoneiric, I can't answer this. But I'm bumping your post, in the hope that someone can try to answer, or refer to other threads, if such exist which supply the info.
