Retirement pension

From the age of 67, employees at HiOA are entitled to a retirement pension from the Public Service Pension Fund and from the National Insurance Scheme. 

The Public Service Pension Fund's retirement pension comes in addition to the retirement pension of the National Insurance Scheme. Most employees will be able to benefit from this from the month after the age of 67.

To be entitled to pension from the age of 67, you must simultaneously apply for a retirement pension from the National Insurance Scheme – it is your responsibility to get this done.

Contractual pension (AFP)

Contractual pension is an early retirement scheme for state employees and teachers between 62 and 67 years. The conditions for AFP vary based on age:

AFP for those between 62 and 65 years

NAV is responsible for the administration of the AFP scheme in the state sector for those between 62 and 65 years. Are you between 62 and 65 years old, it is therefore NAV that calculates and disburses your pension.

AFP for those between 65 and 67 years 

When you reach the age of 65, it is the Public Service Pension Fund’s rules for calculating the AFP that apply. If you have received AFP before the age of 65 and the National Insurance Scheme’s calculation is higher than ours, you will, however, not lose pension.

Your local HR unit can assist with completing the application form.

See nav.no - AFP in the public sector.

Disability pension

If you need to reduce your working hours due to illness or injury, you may be entitled to disability pension from the Public Service Pension Fund. Disability pension is normally disbursed after one year of absence due to illness.

After one year of absence due to illness, all state employees can be granted a disability pension.

You should apply for the disability pension in good time. The processing time is approximately four months. Remember to notify your immediate supervisor / case officer when you have submitted the application.

Disability pension can be temporary or permanent.

The application for disability pension can be withdrawn at any time.

Surviving spouse's pension

Surviving spouse's pension is the pension that can be provided to the employee's spouse and children.

Dependent's pension

This is a monthly benefit to the surviving spouse / registered partner if the person who is a member of the Public Service Pension Fund dies.

You are entitled to a pension if your spouse dies one year or more after being employed in a position which gave the right to a membership in the Public Service Pension Fund.

Cohabitants are not entitled to a dependent’s pension.

Children's pension

Children under 20 years old are entitled to children's pension if one parent dies and he or she was a member of the Public Service Pension Fund.
