SPK will pay your pension on the 25th of each month to the account you have registered. If the 25th falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the pension will be paid on the weekday before.
Normally, SPK makes a tax deduction of 30 percent on pensions paid. The tax deduction differs depending on when you retire and whether or not the SPK pension is your main income.
If you live abroad, you must request a special tax decision (SINK) from the Swedish Tax Agency and send the decision to SPK. It is important that SPK is listed as the payer on the document you receive from the Tax Agency. You can email or post the document from the Tax Agency to SPK.
SPK is obliged to communicate the TIN number – Tax Identification Number – in the statement of earnings and deductions submitted to the Tax Agency for citizens residing in the EU/EEA. You can check the format of your TIN number on the EU Commission’s website>> before you provide it to SPK.
Notify Swedbank or your savings bank of the account into which you want your pension to be deposited, regardless of which bank you have. You can register or change your account number in three different ways:
The payment specification is sent out a few days before you receive your first pension payment or when the pension amount changes.
You can now also receive your deposit slips digitally via Internet Banking if you have updated your contact details on our website, where you can also view your upcoming and already paid benefits for the year via Logga in privatperson.

You also have the possibility to receive e-notification via the Internet Bank if you have Swedbank/savings bank or Nordea and you register your e-mail with us. You can register your e-mail yourself in logged-in mode on the Internet Bank.

The pension supplement can be viewed on the Internet Bank on 17 January at the earliest if you log in with Mobile BankID.
In January of each year, the statement of earnings and deductions for the previous year’s pension payments is included in the payment specification. You will receive it a few days before the January payment.
