An introduction to the Danish pension system

The Danish pension system is often held up among the best in the world. The presentation discusses this system in this context, highlighting similarities and key differences between the Danish and other pension systems.

This high level discussion is followed up by a more detailed look at the so-called “pillar 1” of the pension system which comprises the familiar state pension and “ATP” which is a funded pension scheme paid into by all people employed in Denmark.

Furthermore, there will be an introduction to a typical pension scheme. You will be taken through areas such as:

  • Pension savings
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Health insurance
  • Pension options for international citizens.
