Pensions and social security

The pension system in Norway consists of pensions from the national insurance scheme, to which everyone is entitled, and various supplementary pensions.

The most important supplementary pensions are occupational pensions, i.e. pensions from pension schemes in employment relationships. There are also various early retirement schemes, i.e. pension benefits paid from a lower age than the national insurance retirement age of 67 years until reaching the national insurance retirement age.
