Calculation of Pensions

According to the EU law and the agreements concluded by Austria pensions can be calculated as follows: 

If the prerequisites for obtaining a pension (with our without calculating the insurance periods for that demand) are fulfilled, the following principle applies:

The Austrian pension is calculated on the basis of the Austrian insurance periods (meaning that there are no payments for insurance periods acquired abroad done by Austria). The amount is then disbursed by the Austrian Pension Insurance Institution ["Österreichische Pensionsversicherungsträger"]. The Pension Insurance Institutions in the other countries proceed in the same way.

If, after being gainfully employed elsewhere, a person returns to Austria, the pension acquired abroad will be disbursed separately from the pension acquired in Austria.
