Deferral of social security contributions
Announcement of the GKV of 24.03.2020Employer No.
our company is registered with your health insurance company under the company number _______
Due to the economic upheaval caused by the Corona crisis, we are suffering from considerable loss of income and are unfortunately not in a position to pay the social insurance contributions on time.
We therefore request the deferment and suspension of the enforcement of the contributions in accordance with § 76 SGB IV for March and April 2020 until further notice. Please do not make any due direct debits (termination of the SEPA mandate). In addition, I ask you to refrain from charging interest and late fees, as envisaged by the Federal Government.
