We offer you two separate – but also related - ways of obtaining the required information on your specific pension provider. On the start page you have the choice between a country or an employer search.
 

1. If you start by choosing a country

  • A list of employers appears under EMPLOYER.
  • Your employer is listed, click on your employer OR type in your employer.
  • Now select your target group. Why select a target group. Well, there might be a direct correlation between the target group and their respective pension providers.
  • Now the responsible pension institutions or schemes are shown.
  • In case there are more than one responsible providers, please choose the one you want to inform yourself. Usually you should read both and learn about the wheres and hows of your pension provision. We recommend to start with the state pension scheme and after that read about the occupational one, if assigned. If not, you can consider the Pension Landscape of the country affected and see what`s the situation concerning the coverage of that kind of provision.
Should your employer not be listed under EMPLOYER, please note that:
  • The statutory pension scheme will apply to you in almost every case.
  • Registration/participation at an occupational or company pension scheme may depend – among others – on your contract/work status or both aspects.

2. If you start by typing in an employer
