The delegation agreement stipulates that workers who are temporarily sent by their company to work in another contracting country must not pay double contributions to pension insurance and unemployment benefit (double insurance). Other provisions are not included in the agreement. B the acquisition of the right to a pension or to pay pensions. „We will continue to trust the British government to fully implement the withdrawal agreement,“ Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Adebahr told reporters in Berlin, currently head of the Council of the European Union. The reception of the agreement in the House of Commons ranged from cold to hostile, and the vote was delayed by more than a month. Prime Minister May has received a motion of no confidence within her own party, but the EU has refused to accept further changes. The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, officially titled the UK`s withdrawal agreement from Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community. is a treaty signed on 24 January 2020 between the European Union (EU), Euratom and the United Kingdom (UK)  which sets the conditions for the UK`s withdrawal from the EU and Euratom. The text of the treaty was published on 17 October 2019 and is a renegotiated version of an agreement published six months earlier.
The previous version of the withdrawal agreement was rejected three times by the House of Commons, leading Queen Elizabeth II to accept Theresa May`s resignation as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and appoint Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister on 24 July 2019. The agreement also provides for a transitional period, which will last until 31 December 2020 and can be extended by mutual agreement. During the transitional period, EU legislation will continue to apply to the UK (including participation in the European Economic Area, the internal market and the customs union) and the UK will continue to contribute to the EU budget, but the UK will not be represented in EU decision-making bodies. The transition period will give businesses time to adapt to the new situation and the new era, so that the British and European governments can negotiate a new trade agreement between the EU and the UK.  On the issue of the Irish border, there is a protocol on Northern Ireland (the „backstop“) which is attached to the agreement and establishes a position of withdrawal that will only come into force if effective alternative arrangements are not demonstrated before the end of the transitional period. In this case, the UK will eclipse the EU`s common external tariff and Northern Ireland will stick to aspects of the internal market until such an event is carried out. Neither party can unilaterally withdraw from this customs union. The aim of this backstop agreement is to avoid a „hard“ border in Ireland, where customs controls are needed.  Other Member States or contracting countries must also take into account Germany`s deadlines when considering their eligibility conditions. Differences remain over the future access of European fishing fleets to British waters and state aid.
It is therefore important to bear in mind that the Brexit agreement protects German pension insurance rights for the time being through the withdrawal agreement. The UK government on Wednesday introduced a Brexit bill aimed at rewriting parts of its EU withdrawal agreement, prompting urgent talks for the EU. On 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (United Kingdom) left the European Union (EU).
