The direct insurance is the classic form of deferred compensation. It has become very popular and has been proved as a simple and administrative acceptable form of company pension scheme.
As employee you can make provisions for retirement by taking out the direct insurance and you can save taxes at the same time. This form of pension provision is possible at up to 4 % of the contributions ceiling in the statutory pension scheme (in 2019: € 3.216,-- p. a.) and is up to this amount free of tax and social security deductions.
Your pension benefit or one-off capital payment is only subject to tax contribution at the time when it is paid out. When entering retirement the income is usually lower than in the working life. Therefore, the tax rate will also be lower accordingly.
