The pension fund for academics
AkademikerPension admits academic degree holders.
The pension fund’s members are mainly employed in the public sector, at academic institutions and upper secondary schools, which offer pension scheme coverage according to collective agreement.
The pension fund also admits privately employed or self-employed academics.
The proceeds of the pension fund’s assets are enjoyed only by its more than 150,000 members.
The pension fund changed its name from MP Pension to AkademikerPension on 1 September 2020.
Annual general meeting
AkademikerPension's highest authority is the annual general meeting. The supervisory board has ten members, five of whom are directly elected by ballot by members from among members. One member is appointed by each of the three organisations: the Danish Association of Masters and PhDs (DM), the Danish Psychological Association (DP), and the Danish National Union of Upper Secondary School Teachers (GL). A further member is appointed by the organisations jointly, while a final member is directly elected by members at the annual general meeting. Supervisory board elections take place every three years.
As a member of AkademikerPension and a non-Danish citizen, you are entitled to join a pension scheme under section 53A of the Danish Pension Tax Act. While your monthly pension contributions are counted as taxable income and taxed according to your taxation status, retirement payments are not taxed. The same applies if you choose to withdraw your pension savings should you decide to leave Denmark.
