The Swedish pension company now sends annual life certificates to everyone who receives a pension paid abroad. Life certificates must be submitted for pension payments to continue.
This year, nearly 163,000 people are being asked to certify that they are living abroad in order to continue receiving pensions. For most of them, about 106,000, certification is automatically done electronically with eight countries. Electronic transfers are for pensioners in Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Germany, Poland, the United States and Spain.
– Anyone who receives our letter, so make sure they are alive, can do it very easily at pensionsmyndigheten.se. There, you submit the life certificate either through an online form or through the Swedish e-ID, says Per Henriksen, business developer at the Swedish Pension Agency.
Residents of the UK must certify themselves
Electronic exchanges with the United Kingdom were halted as the United Kingdom left the EU. So, the 4,311 residents in the UK need to make sure they are alive.
