Notify the Artists' Social Security Fund of the change in personal data

The Künstlersozialkasse always requires your current data in order to process your insurance.

If you are self-employed as an artist or journalist and are insured through the Künstlersozialkasse or entitled to a subsidy, the Künstlersozialkasse will store your personal data insofar as it is necessary for the implementation and processing of your social security obligations.

This includes, among other things

  • First name and surname
  • artist's name
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • your address
  • Bank details
  • Data of the SEPA direct debit mandate, if applicable
  • Status of parental status
  • Other contact information

If your contact details change, for example if you move house, please inform the Künstlersozialkasse.

You can also inform the Künstlersozialkasse if your contact details change: for example, enter a mobile telephone number in addition to the landline telephone number.

You must also inform the Künstlersozialkasse of your date of death.

Your data will be used for communication with you, but also for the necessary data exchange with other authorities, service providers or banks.
