Abstract:In the study at hand, the impact the refugee surge starting in 2014 is expected to have on the demographic development in Germany and the national retirement system was examined with the help of three scenarios. The integration of refugees who reached the country in the past two years and who are likely to further enter German ground in the next future was assumed to be beneficial for the country and its population in many regards. Based on various theoretical assessments, it was concluded that the integration of refugees into the German society will slow down the decreasing of the population size. Furthermore, it was revealed that the expected population present in Germany in 2030 will be able to sustain the share of elderlies being present in the same year, but that the integration of refugees into the national labour market leads to a higher share of pensions expected to be paid in 2030. The assessment was done based on the theoretical knowledge gathered in an extensive literature and data analysis
