Zavod za pokojninsko in invalidsko zavarovanje Slovenije (ZPIZ) is the Slovenian State Pension Scheme for all employees and self-employed persons int.al. Check the new Pension ABCs containing the answers to your main questions about the ZPIZ. If you work as a researcher at the University of Primorska, University of Ljubljana or Unversity of Maribo we recommend also to take a look at the Occupational Pension System for public servants, managed by Modra zavarovalnica.
Regarding researchers working at universities in Ireland we are now lucky to present the Pension ABCs of the Occupational Pension Scheme for public employees provided by the Irish Department of Public Expenditure & Reform.
Many thanks to all people involved in providing these useful information!
