State Pension

You are entitled to a state pension when you reach the age of retirement and meet a list of requirements.

It is up to you to apply for a state pension. You can do this through Gentofte Kommune which will send you a letter a couple of months before you turn 65.

Social pension is paid out monthly.

The state pension is regulated every year on the 1st of January. The regulation will automatically appear on your pension statement which is sent to you every January, every year or when changes are made to the amount.

Your obligation to inform Gentofte Kommune

If you are claiming early retirement or state pension, you will need to inform Gentofte Kommune about changes which may have an impact on your pension. You will have to notify Gentofte Kommune if you are moving abroad, if your income changes or if you travel to en extent where it can affect your right to claim pension.
