Period of leave


Are you taking a temporary leave of absence?

Are you going on maternity or parental leave? Then your pension accrual in the basic scheme will continue. If you take a temporary unpaid leave, then your accrual will be paused.

Pregnancy leave

During pregnancy leave, your pension accrual continues. You don’t have to do anything for this. After all, you continue to be employed as usual. You must also continue to pay your own contribution during this period.

Unpaid leave

If you take a period of unpaid leave, your pension accrual stops for the duration. As soon as you return to work, accrual starts again. This does not apply in the case of parental leave. Pension accrual continues for the duration of parental leave.
