The insurance certificate makes administrative dealings with the compensation offices or implementing bodies easier.
In case of a change in job, the certificate must be submitted to the new employer so that he or she can register with the relevant compensation office. However, the certificate must no longer be submitted to the office by the employer. It is sufficient to transmit the data (preferably online via PartnerWeb).
Where do I order a new OASI certificate?
Self-employed persons who have changed their name (e.g. due to marriage or divorce) or have lost their OASI certificate can order a new certificate directly from his or her compensation office.
