Please note the note on the applicable legal version.

The law on social protection of farmers controls as part of the Agricultural Social Insurance the age insurance for farmers ; it is divided into five chapters.

The first chapter contains regulations on the group of people insured. The second chapter contains regulations on the various benefits, such as pension entitlements or medical rehabilitation benefits . The third chapter regulates the organization and data protection . The fourth chapter concerns the financing from contributions and federal funds and the fifth chapter finally contains various special and transitional regulations.

According to Section 68 of Book I of the Social Code, the law is a special component of the Social Security Code and is to be classified there as part of the statutory pension insurance .

From 1957 to 1994, the farmers' old-age pension was governed by the Farmers Old Age Allowance Act - GAL . In 1995 the GAL was transferred to the ALG through a fundamental reform (Agrarian Social Reform Act - ASRG) which, among other things, introduced the so-called peasant pension.
