As a member of the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund you have one of the best pension schemes on the market. If you have full pension-qualifying service, you will get a retirement pension of 66 percent of your contribution to your pension fund.
Contractual pension (AFP) is an alternative for anyone who wishes to gradually reduce or end their working life before normal retiring age. Whether you choose a complete or partial reduction, the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund will ensure that you get a satisfactory pension scheme.
If you become unfit for work, a disability pension from the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund ensures financial stability for both you and your dependents.
A marriage lasts unto death us do part, and for a surviving spouse/ partner it is reassuring to know that a dependent's pension from the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund lasts for life. A dependent's pension gives your surviving relatives an extra income to support their lives. Membership of the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund is therefore a benefit for your dependents too.
Employees who leave member-qualifying positions without moving on to retirement, can be entitled to a so-called deferred pension. To be entitled to a deferred pension, you must work at least three years in a position that entitles membership.
