Additional information

The choice of an occupational pension fund is personal. Everyone who is subject to participation in an occupational pension fund has to submit an application and conclude a contract with a pension company of their choice. Applications are submitted to the selected company which submits them to the National Revenue Agency.

Every member has the right to submit an application for participation in only one occupational pension fund.

There is a three-month deadline. Everyone who has started working for the first time under the conditions of the first or second category of labour has to choose an occupational pension fund. Those who have not made their choice within three months, as well as those who have applied for participation in more than one OPF, are distributed ex officio (formally affiliated) among the registered occupational pension funds.

Retirement provision is implemented on the basis of a contract between a member and a licensed pension company. Contributions are accumulated in an individual member account.

  2. In assessing the right to a pension pursuant to para. 1, the insured length of service under the first category of labour supplements the insured length of service under the second category of labour without conversion.


    3. The pension is paid until the age under Art. 68, para. 1 of SSC has been reached, and it may not be received together with a labour-activity pension or with a social disability pension under Part One of the SSC.


   4. The existence of the insured length of service required is proved by a certificate from the National Social Security Institute.
