Abstract/Citation: This Act amends the Social Code (LS 1980 - Ger. F.R. 2 (cons.)) by adding a reference in s. 23 to benefits for raising children. It also amends the Acts on pension insurance for workers and employees, respectively, by inserting a new division on this topic, and makes conforming amendments to other Acts. Basically, the new provisions set forth the conditions under which mothers, born before 1921, who withdrew from the workforce to care for a child, may receive an increase of 1.125 per cent in their regular pensions.
