  • The proposal entails that it would be possible to pause a commenced pay out of pension and to change the period of payment after the pension withdrawal has begun.
  • Currently, there is a rule in place that prohibits stopping pension payments during the first five years after the pension has begun to be paid out.
  • The amendment is proposed to enter into force on 1 January 2025.
