The Medical Doctors' Pension Fund was established in 1946 and includes approximately 38.000 members. The Pension Fund is located at Frederiksberg in Copenhagen and has approximately 90 employees who are handling member services, investments, banking operations and administration.
After retirement all members will receive a monthly pension from the Pension Fund. In addition to the old-age pension, The Medical Doctors' Pension Fund offers insurance in the event of disability, death (widow/widower/cohabitant's pension and childrens pension) and critical illness.
If you are a Foreign Medical Doctor with a limited license
If you are not a Danish citizen, there are some special rules to be regarded. When you hold a limited license you are admitted to the Pension Fund on a "savings membership", which means that you are saving money for old-age pension, but that you have no insurance in the event of disability, death or critical illness. If you become ill or die, the balance in your account will be used to purchase a pension from the pension fund.
In case you decide to leave the country permanently, you have the right - as a non-Danish resident - to receive a payout of the balance in your account. Please contact the Pension Fund.
