Born before 1988 - Section 2
Your employer pays into your occupational pension each month. It could be several thousands each month. Through your employment you have a safety net that in the event of your death pays out money to your family. You might also have the right to a sickness pension in the event that you should become long term ill.
Your money is placed in different parts
The occupational pension consists of different parts. You may have the right to two or three of them, you belong to section 2 of the collective agreement PA16.
The selectable part
Your employer pays money equivalent to 2,5 percent of your salary into this part. You can choose how the money should be managed by selecting the form of savings and insurer. You do not have to make a selection if you do not wish. If you do not make a choice, the money is placed in a traditional insurance without repayment cover managed by Kåpan Government Employees Pension Fund. That insurance would be called Kåpan Valbar.
Your employer pays money equivalent to 2 percent of your salary into the pension insurance Kåpan Tjänste. The insurer Kåpan Government Employees Pension Fund manages this part. You cannot choose another insurer for this part.
Defined benefit retirement pension
- If you were born before 1973, you also earn into a defined benefit retirement pension.
- If you were born 1973 or later and have an annual pensionable salary over 557 250 SEK (7,5 income base amounts) you will also earn into a defined benefit retirement pension. Simplified the pensionable salary is the average of your pensionable based annual salaries from the five latest years. If you have not been employed for a full five year period the pensionable salary is calculated on the pensionable based salaries you have had so far.
- The size of this part is determined by your salary, how many years you have been employed, and what year you were born.
You are insured through your employment
You are insured through your government employment. This means you could receive a sick pension if you become long term ill. In addition, your family could receive money if you pass away.
