Norway – New options for people approaching retirement

From 2011 people will have the option to start drawing their national insurance retirement pension at the age of 62. It will also be possible to combine drawing a pension with continuing to work. If you want to receive your first pension payment in January 2011, you must apply before 1 August 2010.

New rules for drawing a national insurance retirement pension come into force on 1 January 2011. The most important change from the current system is that you will be able to use the pension rights you have accumulated in the national insurance scheme from the age of 62. The changes provide greater flexibility and a number of new options in connection with drawing retirement pensions.
