When you make contributions to SUPP, you will receive an extra monthly payment when you become an old-age pensioner. You will pay 1/3 of the contribution while the state will pay 2/3. Your share is DKK 185 (2021) per month and the state's share is DKK 370 (2021) per month.

There will be deducted 8 per cent in social security contributions to the Danish Tax Agency because the pension is considered equivalent to a labour market pension. If your disability pension is less than your share of the payment to SUPP, you cannot pay SUPP contributions.

When you make payments to SUPP, it may impact other benefits that you receive. For example, it might impact rent subsidies.

Before you reach the state retirement age, the amount that you pay to SUPP is deducted from your personal income. This may mean that, for example, you can get more in rent subsidies because our income will be less.

When you reach the state retirement age, you will be paid your pension from SUPP and, as a result, your personal income will increase. For some, this might result in them receiving less in rent subsidies.

You are welcome to contact Udbetaling Danmark - Public Benefits Administration by calling +45 70 12 80 61 if you have any questions about what this might mean for you.

You can also get your SUPP pension payments once you reach the state retirement age. This also applies if, for example, you have a life-threatening illness. If you die before reaching the state retirement age, the estate of the deceased person will be paid a lump sum.

Not everyone can retire at the age of 65. The state pension age depends on the year in which you were born and the payment is determined by the state retirement age.

If your SUPP is administered by ATP, then here you can read more about how much you can expect to receive. The size of your pension depends on how long you make contributions

Below you can see how much you can expect to receive in relation to when you started making contributions:

 20  DKK   28.500  69
 30  DKK   19.500  69
 40  DKK   12.500  69
 50  DKK     6.600  69
 60  DKK     1.600  67
 

The amounts are before tax. They are shown in contemporary kroner, i.e. what the amounts are today.

If you die before reaching the state retirement age, there will be paid a lump sum to the estate of the deceased person to the deceased person's NemKonto.

The amount is the equivalent of half of your contributions to SUPP and is increased by a certain interest rate each year. If you die before reaching the state retirement age, the lump sum can never amount to less than your savings as of 31 December 2012.

Please note that there will be deducted 40 per cent in taxes to the state before the money is paid.

If you die after reaching the state retirement age.

If you die five years after reaching the state retirement age, your surviving dependants will also be paid a lump sum. The lump sum gradually decreases from when you reach the state retiement age to five years from that date.

There will not be paid any amount if you die five years after having reached the state retiremen age.

The rules were changed on 1 January 2013, and the payment of lump sums after reaching the state retirement age only applies to those who were born in 1948 or after. If you were born before 1948, there will not be paid a lump sum if you die after become an old-age pensioner.

In 2013, your SUPP savings were transferred to ATP livslang Pension. You will therefor not have to pay separately for the costs of investment and the administration of two different schemes. Instead, it is ATP Livslang Pension and SUPP's shared reserves that cover all costs.

When you die, there may be paid a lump sum to the estate leave behind.

If you make SUPP contributions, part of the amount goes to an insurance in the event of death. For 2020, it has been, calculated that the expenses for this insurance amount to 8 per cent of the contributions.
