The German “Star” weekly said on the 15th that in Germany, if the parents’ own insurance and assets can not pay all the cost of old-age care, the children are obliged to bear economic responsibility. However, the new law recently enacted by Germany stipulates that this obligation is only imposed when the child’s annual income exceeds 100,000 euros.
According to the old law, if the monthly income of a single child after tax is more than 1,800 euros, more than half of the cost will be used to support parents who are not financially capable. For example, if a child’s monthly income after tax is 3,000 euros, he can support his parents for up to 600 euros a month.
According to the report, the new law has greatly raised the threshold for children’s support obligations. Only children whose annual income exceeds 100,000 euros need to bear parental support and reduce the financial burden of young people. To this end, the German states and cities need to increase the additional expenditure of 300 million euros per year. Many people welcome this move and think that the government has done a real thing. However, some experts believe that this regulation is nothing more than “the wool is on the sheep”, and the pension insurance deducted from the salary of the employees will be more.
