Those who work for Caritas in Germany acquire an entitlement to a company pension. The Catholic Church Welfare Association has been concluding contracts for company pensions with R+V Versicherung throughout Germany since 2019. For several months, R+V has been leasing the practice space for Gabie Raven’s new abortion clinic in Dortmund.
In a press release, R+V states, “All new employer-financed occupational pension contracts of employees of Caritas legal entities who are not participants in a church or public-law supplementary pension fund will be made retroactively as of January 1, 2019, nationwide through R+V Lebensversicherung AG.”
The practice premises for Gabie Raven’s new abortion clinic in Dortmund belong to R+V Pensionsversicherung a.G. In the pension business area, R+V has gained a potent major customer in Caritas. This is because the Catholic Church employs around 660,000 people in Caritas alone, making it the largest private employer in Germany.
