There are various kinds of pension, but in general a pension is
composed of retirement savings to give you security in your old age,
and ensure you will have enough money to get by.
The state pension is a pension to which all Danish citizens are
entitled once they have been citizens of Denmark for 40 years. In
Denmark you can receive your state pension from the age of 65. If
you reach the age of 60 after 1999, you can receive the state
pension once you are over 67.
If you should become unable to work, you have the opportunity to
take early retirement before the age of 65.
Besides the state pension, most people, though not all, save up for
their retirement through a company pension scheme to which they pay
in automatically. It is a good idea to start paying into a pension
scheme as early as possible.
More and more people today are also creating their own retirement
savings alongside the state pension and company pension scheme,
which will help to further secure their old age.
It is up to you, after all, to decide how you will live in your
senior years. However, most people realise that it can be hard to
maintain their standard of living during this time.
