Pensions

Pensions cover benefits paid by social security institutions (pension insurance, accident insurance) and civil servants’ pensions (civil servants' pensions and survivors' pensions) as well as social compensation for war victims and military service victims. The data is mainly provided by the Federation of Social Insurances.

Recipients of a pension benefit according to the unified ESSPROS methodology (European System of Integrated Social Protection Statistics) also include those who receive pensions from the Night and Heavy Work Act (special pension), occupational pensions and pensions from unemployment insurance (special benefit, transition benefit). Beneficiaries of several pension benefits are covered in each relevant function. However, in total they are only counted once. The corresponding results in the EU are available on the Eurostat website.
