When entering into government employment, you will receive pension from several sources. The Pension Pyramid illustrates the various sources.

The base is formed by the national retirement pension paid by the Swedish Pensions Agency. Most employees also receive a collectively bargained occupational pension from their employer. If you have worked in a government job, you will receive government employee pension. Some people also have a private savings scheme. The pensions add up to form your total pension.

The Swedish Pensions Agency is in charge of the national retirement pension in Sweden. They help both those who are still working and earning their pension and those who are already retired.
