The easiest way for the employer to make contributions into a pension fund for their employees is to use the Pension Payment (similarly to salary payments) option under “Payments” section on the Business Internet Banking site. When contributions are made using the Pension Payment option, the employer saves time as all contributions for employees can be made by importing a single file and transferring them in a single payment. To see an example of pension payment, click here. Before the Pension Payment option can be used, it needs to be enabled at any Swedbank branch and the company’s representative who will be able to do it must be specified.
Alternatively, the employer can make the contributions by a regular transfer, specifying in the payment details the employee’s forename, surname, identity number and personal pension account for which the contribution is being made in the pension fund. This is a convenient option in case of contributions for only a couple of employees.
If the number of employees is quite large and for some reason the Pension Payment option cannot be used, the employer can make a single transfer for all employees and, subject to prior arrangement, send the details about the contributions to Swedbank Atklātais Pensiju Fonds AS by e-mail to email@example.com, followed by the original of the details of contributions by post to Swedbank Atklātais Pensiju Fonds AS, Balasta dambis 15, Rīga LV-1048.
