Bundesrat and Bundestag have passed the basic pension. From January 1, 2021, pensioners will benefit from the supplement, which is intended to protect against poverty. After all, those who have worked for a lifetime, raised children or cared for loved ones deserve acknowledgement. On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) we are making the basic pension campaign visible to target audiences and will also help the Ministry with many other media requirements during 2020, the year of the COVID-19 pandemic: For example, we are placing announcements on short-time working benefits, minimum wages, working from home and the supply chain law on the internet. Print ads and poster campaigns are also added.
