FAQ on social security
We are a Polish research institute and want to employ a German researcher, currently living in Germany, who will bring an A 1 form with him. The A 1 form means we are exempt from paying Polish social security contributions for the German researcher. Do we have to pay social security contributions for him in Germany?
I am American but have been living in Germany for 6 years with a settlement permit working as a researcher at a university. In a few months I am going to take up a position at an Irish research institute but for personal reasons intend to continue living in Germany and also to spend most of my time working there. Where will I pay social security contributions?
