Pension fund

Description

In addition to paying the social security contributions required by law (health insurance, accident insurance and public pension scheme), every month the University of Innsbruck makes payments into a university pension fund for all eligible employees. These contributions are invested and offer employees additional retirement provision, invalidity insurance, and survivors' benefits after their employment has ended.

All employees for whom contributions to the university pension fund are made can themselves add additional payments to the pension fund; in doing so, they can increase the respective later benefits and take advantage of the corresponding tax incentives offered.

For whom?

Employees subject to the collective employment agreement and who have been continuously employed at the University of Innsbruck for more than two years:

  • Allianz Pension Fund
  • Contributions in the amount of 3% (10% for professors) of the gross salary as defined by the collective employment agreement (different regulations apply for apprentices and minimum income workers)
  • Please find details at: https://www.allianzpk.at
