ATP is a responsible and forward-looking pension provider. We safeguard the shared savings of Danes and ensure that we will all have a little bit extra to live on when we retire.

What is ATP Livslang Pension (Lifelong Pension)? 

ATP Livslang Pension (Lifelong Pension) is a collective pension scheme that all wage earners are automatically contributing to. From the day you retire and from that point on, you will be paid a monthly supplement to your state pension - and it does not matter how old you end up becoming.

This is also the only pension saving that both you, your neighbour, your colleagues, and, not least, your employer have in common. In fact, we are five million Danes all saving up together.

Why do we manage pensions?

Together with the state pension, ATP Livslang Pension (Lifelong Pension) amounts to the basic benefit of the Danish pension system. The Danish pension system is built on three pillars: ATP Livslang Pension (Lifelong Pension) and the state pension, labour market pensions based on collective agreements and voluntary private pensions.

ATP was founded in 1964 and charged with creating supplemental pensions for Danes. Ever since then, we have ensured that you will have a bit more to live on when you retire. Some hardly notice the extra supplement, but for others, they would not have a good retirement without it.
