Want to send back money home? You can make an international money transfer from your German account. Depending on where you want your money sent, you have different options to use for an international money transfer.
Within the EU: SEPA Credit Transfer
Within the EU, including Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, a simple enough SEPA or an EU standard transfers, so that the amount to the bank account will be credited to the recipient. The forms are similar to those of a domestic transfer to be filled in the same way: receiver including bank account details, amount, purpose, and together with the bank account holder.
A SEPA transfer form translated into English is provided below for reference.

This is related to pension office forms and not banks or transfers, but I did some looking and found this for you. If you can speak German, visit the website of the German Pension system https://www.deutsche-rentenversicherung.de/KnappschaftBahnSee/de/Navigation/0_Home/home_node.html
I assume you are talking about German pension, so depending on where you live you can either use
a. living in US or Canada use the form https://www.deutsche-rentenversicherung.de/Allgemein/de/Inhalt/5_Services/04_formulare_und_antraege/_pdf/A1312.pdf?__blob=publicationFile&v=6
b. if you live in countries other than US or Canada use the form https://www.deutsche-rentenversicherung.de/Allgemein/de/Inhalt/5_Services/04_formulare_und_antraege/_pdf/A1310.pdf?__blob=publicationFile&v=7
Fill it up and send it to the German Pension office address provided on the website.
