Join II pillar

From 2021, those born before 1983 and those who have not yet joined the II pillar will be able to start collecting by submitting an application. This means that 2% of your gross salary goes to the pension account and the state adds twice as much, i.e. 4%, at the expense of the social tax paid for you.

All those born in 1983 and later automatically join the II pillar, unless they have applied for exemption from II pillar payments before joining.


1 January – 31 March

II pillar collectors have the opportunity to submit an application

From 1 January to the end of March, people who have joined the II pillar have the first opportunity to apply for either a II pillar withdrawal or an exemption from contributions. However, both options must be thought through.


31 March

Withdraw your application

If you applied for a waiver of II pillar contributions between January and March, please submit your application before 31 March to withdraw your application.


1 April

Consider investing yourself

From 1 April 2021, it will be possible to open a pension investment account and submit an exchange application for the full or partial transfer of the amount collected in the II pillar to this solution. Exchange applications made from April to the end of July will be realised and the assets will be move to the pension investment account in September.
