Tariff-based Future Payment

Your future – your tariff-based future payment

Employees covered by collective bargaining agreements have an entitlement to the tariff-based future payment: an additional annual benefit from Fresenius, the amount of which is calculated based on your individual collectively agreed remuneration. You can find the list of participating Fresenius companies here.

You can determine how your payment is used from year to year. You have three options and can choose differently each year. From 2023, there will even be four options: you can actively select a cash payment as your intended use. Either your tariff-based future payment can be used for a single purpose or a combination.

If you make no selection, the tariff-based future payment will automatically be paid into the compensatory time account or - if you are not entitled to a compensatory time account, a payout is made.

Your options

Days in lieu

Is flexibility of time important to you? Then you can use part of the future payment for individual days in lieu. The maximum number of possible days in lieu is 3 days, and from 2023 onwards you will be entitled to 5 days. As a general principle, these are to be taken individually. Deviations are possible.
