Pension insurance

In Austria, women reach pensionable age at 60 and men at 65. You become eligible for pension payment after 180 months (15 years) working in Austria and having pension insurance payments made on your behalf.

A person is entitled to receive a pension in the following cases:

  • An ‘insured event’ occurs: i.e. retirement age, inability to work
  • Fulfilment of the minimum insurance period
  • Fulfilment of other conditions for entitlement
