Authentication of documents for pension matters

The certification confirms that the content of the copy is identical to the original document. However, the certification does not certify the authenticity or validity of the original.

This service is offered exclusively on a municipal basis. Your request can therefore only be processed if you have your main place of residence in Bremen.

From 15.11.2023, you will not need an appointment for this request at the BürgerServiceCenter Mitte.

We kindly ask you to pay the fee at the express counter by EC card.

Important: You will still need an appointment at the BürgerServiceCenter Stresemannstraße and the BürgerServiceCenter Nord.
