The Bundessozialgericht (German for Federal Social Court) is the German federal supreme court of appeals for social security cases.[1] The court was created on 11 September 1954[2] to hear cases about public health insurance, long-term care insurance, pension insurance and occupational accident insurance plans.[3] These cases usually start in the Sozialgerichte ("Social Courts"), then the Landessozialgerichte ("Superior State Social Courts"), before the cases wind up at the Bundessozialgericht.
