LUXEMBOURG PENSION PLAN FOR EMPLOYEES WITH AN INTERNATIONAL CARREER
If an employee spends his entire career only in Luxembourg, in order to have the right to a retirement pension by the age of 65 (with exceptions) he must have contributed to social security for at least 10 years.
If an employee has worked in Luxembourg and another state of the European Union, his retirement pension will come from Luxembourg under the dual condition:
- of having contributed at least one year in Luxembourg;
- of having contributed for at least 10 years to a retirement pension in the social security system of any state pertaining to the EU (including Luxembourg). Each country calculates and pays the proportion of the pension that corresponds to that country.
If the duration of the contribution in Luxembourg is fewer than 12 months, or if the total duration of the contributions in the European Union is fewer than 10 years, the amount contributed will be reimbursed.
