Pension Investment Account

For you if you want to grow your pension funds yourself.

  • Manage the self-created pension fund: decide your investment strategy and make the transactions.
  • Favourable fees for trading and managing the portfolio.
  • With Swedbank’s Robur funds, you will always have access to world markets.
  • The leverage of the second pillar remains: the state adds two euros to each one euro of yours.

You can start investing using the Pension Investment Account (PIA) in the autumn, but you can already join now.

Important dates

  • 8 April 2021. From this date, you can apply to open the PIA. If you want your already collected pension savings to be transferred to your PIA, you can also submit an exchange application at the same time. The funds will reach your PIA in September. Then you can also start investing on your own.
  • 31 July 2021. If you want the pension savings you have collected to be transferred from the pension fund to the PIA as soon as possible, i.e. in September, you have to submit an exchange application no later than on this date.
  • 1 September 2021. You can invest your pension funds yourself through the PIA. If you want to receive your monthly II Pillar contributions to your PIA, you can submit the corresponding application from September.

What is the PIA?

The Pension Investment Account (PIA) is a tool for those who want to invest their pension themselves.

Using a PIA, you will continue collecting pension with the benefits of the II pillar, as the PIA will allow you to receive regular contributions on the basis of the profitable 2 + 4 scheme:

  • 2% of the funds come from your gross wages;
  • 4% is added by the state at the expense of the social tax paid on your wages.

You can also transfer money already collected in the II pillar pension fund to your PIA. You can decide on your own whether to transfer all or part of the amount. In the same way, you can also transfer the money on the PIA back to the II pillar fund. Read more about withdrawing money from the PIA here.

Why open the PIA with Swedbank?

When using the PIA in Swedbank, the same favourable price list applies to your transactions as if you would be making investments using a Securities Account registered in Swedbank. Simple and without any hidden fees!

  • Transactions with Swedbank`s Robur funds are free of charge.
  • Transactions with Baltic shares are free of charge.
  • US and European stock exchange transaction fees start from €9.90.
  • Holding a portfolio is free of charge.

Although you may have several Pension Investment Accounts, contributions can only go to one account or pension fund at a time.

  1. Open the PIA on the Internet Banking.
  2. Along with opening of the PIA, you can immediately submit an exchange application to bring the already accumulated pension funds to your PIA.
  3. Having submitted an exchange application to transfer funds from the pension fund to the PIA no later than 31 July 2021, the amount will be transferred to your PIA on 1 September 2021 and you can start investing it / manage the funds yourself.
  4. From 1 September 2021, it is worthwhile for you to visit the PIA page again, because you are then able to submit an application so that your PIA would automatically receive monthly contributions in the future.

documentConditions of pension investment account

You will already be able to withdraw money from the PIA on more favourable terms 5 years before retirement. To make payments, you must first sell the securities in your PIA.

You can then choose between three options:

  1. Regular payments (funded pension).
    To do this, you have to transfer the money in the PIA to a pension fund. If you set a period for payments which corresponds to your life expectancy, then you are able to use the money with a 0% income tax rate. Having chosen a shorter period, the income tax paid on the payments is 10%.
  2. One-off payout, the amount of which you have to pay 10% income tax on.
  3. Whole life insurance contract or insurance for a specified term.

In case of no work ability, you can withdraw money tax-free.

From January 2021, money can also be withdrawn from the II pillar before reaching the retirement age. This may not be beneficial for you. Why?

  • By way of withdrawing money from your PIA, you stop collecting in the II pillar system. The money that would otherwise accrue to your personal pension account under the beneficial 2 + 4 scheme will now be used in the state budget to cover the current expenses of the state.
  • You will not be able to collect in the II pillar for the next 10 years. The higher your income, the greater your financial loss.
  • If you leave the II pillar, you will also have to sell your investment in your PIA. The payout is made in cash.
  • You have to pay 20% income tax on the amount to be withdrawn.
