A Federal Chancellor, as the person who determines the policy direction for the Federal Republic of Germany, receives the average salary calculated on the basis of the average of the salaries of the management boards of the five largest DAX companies at the time of the appointment. The Federal Chancellor is prohibited from engaging in any activity (other than public honorary positions) following the end of their activity. In that respect, upon leaving office, the Federal Chancellor receives 50 percent of the remuneration as Federal Chancellor for life. Upon leaving office, the Federal Chancellor undertakes to remain neutral.
