The topic of “insurance and coverage” for designers is becoming increasingly complex. And especially self-employed and freelancers are expected to take care of their own affairs after their studies. At the same time, hardly anyone understands the intricacies of the artists’ social insurance fund and the pension fund. When and how do I join the KSK, and what do I get out of it?

What insurance coverage do I really need, and what can I do without? How can I draw up a sensible financial plan? What does my coverage look like in old age? How can I insure myself against occupational disability, even as a creative?
