#GemeinsamAllemGewachsen (together we are up to anything)

We stand up for war refugees from Ukraine and their helpers

We are deeply saddened that in the 21st century a brutal war of aggression is being waged in Europe. This attack on Ukraine has triggered great solidarity. There is also great sympathy and willingness to help among Sparkassen-Versicherung Sachsen and its employees. As an insurer, we also want to offer people in emergency situations and our customers comprehensive protection in these times of crisis.
Sparkassen-Versicherung Sachsen joins the support of the people from Ukraine and their helpers here in Germany and in Saxony. With the following offers, we want to do our part to ensure that people who have had to leave their homes out of fear for their lives are helped quickly and unbureaucratically. We also want to support those who stand by the refugees and provide humanitarian aid with offers of help.
Welcome to Germany
  • In Germany there is a national insurance into which most employees automatically pay contributions and are thus entitled to benefits. However, in many areas of life you need additional private security.
    If you have any questions or would like to get individual advice, the Sparkassen-Versicherung Sachsen and all Saxon Sparkassen will be happy to help you.
    With the following brochure you have important information on the subject of insurance cover in your hand:
Legal advice for helpers
  • Through our partner company, the "ÖRAG Rechtsschutzversicherung" (legal protection insurance), we offer all helpers free legal advice over the phone on urgent legal issues. It is carried out by a law firm licensed in Germany. The advice is free of charge and is also available to people without legal protection insurance.

Working for Sparkassen-Versicherung Sachsen
  • Ukrainian refugees can obtain the status of "war refugee" throughout the EU. With this status, refugees receive a right of residence for an initial period of two years and immediate access to the labour market. The prerequisite for this is registration with the local foreigners' authority. The Employment Agency has compiled further information here.
    If you would like to work here as a refugee with your protection status, we at Sparkassen-Versicherung Sachsen also offer you various employment opportunities.
    We are the only insurance company and market leader in Saxony with 800 employees at the head office in Dresden and everywhere in the region. You will find varied tasks with prospects with us.
    Possible activities, depending on your suitability, could be customer advisory service in our agencies all over Saxony or directly with us, working in the telephone advisory service and claims reporting or supporting our IT projects. The work is possible on a temporary basis or part-time.

Information for refugees from Ukraine
Information for helpers and those willing to help
  • The war in Ukraine has led to a continuous flight of Ukrainian citizens. Many of them had to leave their homes in a hurry and are now mostly in the countries bordering Ukraine. International organisations expect that in the coming weeks and months, due to the limited capacities of the neighbouring countries and the ongoing war, there will be a considerable movement of refugees to Germany as well. Many citizens want to help and get involved with those arriving. For this very valuable support, you will find some information here.
