Your foundation for later years
A retirement pension lays the foundation for your later years so that you can enjoy life after retirement. The general right to a pension starts at the age of 67, and, by joining SL pension fund, you earn the right to a lifelong pension at retirement in proportion to your payment to the fund.
The retirement pension is independent of other income and is paid on a monthly basis. It is possible to accelerate withdrawal and to start receiving a retirement pension earlier if you so choose but then the payments will decrease for each month accelerated.
You can see how this could work out for you by using the calculator and get an idea of how high the retirement pension might be. On the website of the Social Insurance Administration, you can also find information about possible reductions in old-age pensions due to income that can affect old-age pension payments.
