Information about Danish old-age pensions

I’d been under the impression that my monthly 8% pension deduction was money thrown away, but not so! I’ve found some information about Danish pensions and how they’re paid to expats who subsequently move abroad. See:

Booklet on Danish pensions abroad

The site contains an 18-page booklet on the Danish pension system, how to collect a Danish pension abroad, the co-ordinating rules in Europe, agreements with other countries, and addresses of pension authorities abroad.

Did you know? If you work in Denmark for at least 3 years, you can collect a reduced pension starting from the day you retire. It can be paid to you in the EU or Canada, depending on where you retire. The amount of pension payments will differ depending on where you retire, if you’re married, etc.
