Basic information

  • On 1 January of each year, employees under 40 years of age and holding a personal number given in Lithuania shall be included in the new pension accumulation system with the possibility to refuse. The proposal to accumulate persons who have not accumulated so far will be repeated every 3 years until the person reaches the age of 40 if the person refuses to participate in pension accumulation. At this age, proposals for aggregation will no longer be made.
  • "Sodra" will inform residents about inclusion through its personal population account and registered letters.
  • Pension contributions for persons included in the accumulation of pensions shall be calculated from 1 July of the year of inclusion in the accumulation of pensions.
  • If you have been included in the accumulation of pensions and have refused to participate in the accumulation of pensions, persons over 40 years of age may become participants by concluding pension accumulation agreements with the chosen pension accumulation company on their own initiative.
  • Persons who, for valid reasons, have been unable to refuse to participate in the accumulation of pensions within the set time limit shall have the right to refuse to participate in the accumulation of pensions after the expiry of this time limit, provided that documents proving valid reasons are submitted. Upon assessing the submitted documents, a servant authorised by "Sodra" shall determine whether the reasons are relevant.

A person can choose whether to start accumulation gradually or transfer 3% of his salary, while the state will contribute 1.5% of the average national wage* to the accumulation of a person.


* In 2022 - €1 439,63.



The gradual increase seems to be as follows:

Year Person's contribution State's contribution
2021 2,4 0,9
2022 2,7 1,2
2023 13 1,5

 

For example, person earns EUR 1,000 (before taxes) per month and his contribution to pension funds is 3%, his pension contribution will be EUR 30 (1,000 x 3% = EUR 30). Another EUR 21,59 (1,439,63 x 1.5% = EUR 21,59) will be transferred from the state budget to the pension fund. A total of EUR 51,59 would be allocated per month.

 

Additional payments: Any accumulation may decide to accrue more than 3% of its salary. He will benefit from a personal income tax exemption for additional contributions. If his employer pays contributions for the future of his employee, he will benefit from a corporate tax exemption for additional contributions.

Temporary suspension of contributions (“holiday” of contributions): The possibility exists of taking a break of up to 12 months in the accumulation of pensions throughout the accumulation period. This break may be divided after several months and it is important that the total duration is not less than one month and does not exceed one year.

Life cycle funds: pension accumulation companies must offer all participants participation in pension funds that are most suited to their age. This means that the manager has to take care of the best possible investment performance when a person is young and make an effort to preserve a person's accumulated wealth during their lifetime as a person approaches the age limit of the old-age pension.
