What do I get from Telenor?
Telenor employees who end and are notified of the pension scheme receive a paid-up policy for the time they have been a member. The rate policy is calculated in the same way as the standard retirement pension, but with a (linear fraction) shortening of the number of days membership versus the number of days until the age of 67. Information about this freight policy is sent annually, in the form of a statement of accounts, either per. Digipost or regular mail. The travel policy will initially be paid from 67 years and as long as you live. However, it is also possible (if the capital is large enough) to start so-called flexible withdrawals, already from 62 years.
For employees in Telenor who remain in the scheme until the retirement age, the pension will be the sum of pension from NAV (possibly including AFP), paid-up policy from other pension plans and any entitlements from the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund or other public pension funds. The pension assignments are updated and sent out per. Digipost or regular mail once a year.

The benefits from TPK will be:
• Retirement pension from the age of 67 years. (66% of the pension basis at the end of the pension when the assumed national insurance is included). The pension basis constitutes annual salary limited to 12 times the National Insurance Scheme’s basic amount.
• Disability pension if you should be at least 50% disabled. Full disability pension comprises:
A) 25% of G, nonetheless no more than 6% of the individual member’s pension base, and
B) 3% of the individual’s Membership Pension Fund, and
C) 66% of the part of the member’s pension base which is between 6 and 12 G.
The disability pension provides child benefits for each child under the age of 18 that the member is or is obliged to provide. For each child, the child allowance amounts to 4% of the member’s pension base up to 6 G. However, the total child allowance may not exceed an amount equivalent to 12% of the member’s pensionable basis up to

Retirement age, ie the retirement age pension will be 67, but it is possible to choose retirement pension from 62 years.
You can freely combine work and retirement without this reducing retirement pension. This means that you can earn as much as you wish next to full or partial retirement. However, this may have tax consequences, and we encourage the individual to investigate how this will affect their own part.
If you take out a pension in full or in part before the age of 67, the annual payments of old-age pension from the National Insurance will be lower than if you wait for 67 years. This is because the pension you have earned is distributed over several years.
As a result of wage changes, your benefits in the pension fund will also be adjusted. Changes in the National Insurance Fund’s basic amount will also be taken into account. Update of salary is run annually in the member register. Should an insurance case arise, however, consideration will be given to the salary you have at the time a possible pension will be paid.
The pensions that are under payment must be adjusted according to the surplus of pensioners’ surplus funds.
