Categories of Insured

As an employee your pension insurance is mandatory. Your employer deducts every month from your salary your mandatory contributions to the pension insurance and forwards that amount of money to the insurance carrier. The insurance carrier registers the month for which the money has been paid and the amount of your salary by which the amounts of your contributions are determined. The same applies to workers who are in an apprenticeship or any other form of professional training.

Under certain conditions you may continue your monthly contributions on a voluntary basis and/or at a reduced rate, although it is not mandatory to continue with your contributions.

Male and females who have raised their own children (in Austria or conditionally in Switzerland or any country, which is a member of the European Union) will receive credits on their accounts with the insurance carrier in the form of monthly contributions.

All paid and credited monthly contributions on your insurance carrier's account will be added up and will determine the time-period you have been insured. Together with the amount of your contributions it will determine the amount of your pension pay-outs.

Therefore it is of absolute importance that ALL monthly contributions are registered by the insurance carrier and credited to your account.

We will help you with making sure that your account is properly credited by investigating and providing proof to the insurance carrier in cases of missing data.
