Redemption amount

For the recognition of insurance period, the insured person must pay a contribution, for each month of recognition, as follows:

1. Employees must pay a contribution equal to the product of the premium (paid by the insured and the employer) for the primary and/or supplementary pension applicable at the time of submission of the application for recognition and the insured person’s earnings in the last month of full employment before submitting the application for redemption.

If, during the month of employment prior to the submission of the application there is no entitlement to full insurance, then the recognition contribution is calculated on the earnings in that month which correspond to full insurance.

2. Non-salaried employees (self-employed, freelancers, persons insured at the ex OGA) must pay, for each recognised insurance month, the contribution corresponding to the insurance category they have selected in the year of submission of the recognition application, with a minimum contribution corresponding to that in the 1st insurance category.

The above refers to recognised insurance periods for which a recognition contribution payment is required.

Payment of redemption contribution

The total amount of the redemption contribution is paid in as many monthly instalments as the number of months recognised. This amount can be paid in a lump sum, in which case a 2% discount is provided for each year of redemption.

In relation to payment in instalments, the first instalment is paid by the end of the month following the notification of the decision. Delay in paying an instalment means it is charged with the respective late interest. In relation to the establishment of a pension entitlement or an increase of the amount of the pension before the time of payment of the redemption contribution, an amount equal to one quarter of the amount of the pension is withheld from the pension every month until repayment.

With regard to supplementary insurance, in any case where the entitlement to a supplementary pension with recognition is established, after having redeemed the insurance periods as mentioned above, the redemption amount due, as long as it does not exceed the amount of three thousand (3.000) euro, is offset or withheld from all supplementary pension amounts which the insured person is entitled to. If the due redemption amount exceeds three thousand (3.000) euro, the part that exceeds three thousand (3.000) euro is repaid in a lump sum before the issuance of the retirement decision, and the remaining part is offset or withheld from the total supplementary pension amounts which the insured person is entitled to.
