Sweden - Retiring and Pensions


Sweden is a fairly expensive place to live, and the high rate of taxation on all income, including pensions, as well as the requirement to have private health insurance, should be taken into account if you plan to retire there. A retired foreign national is required by law to have an income which is at least equivalent to the Swedish pension or around 6,850 SEK per month.

However, Sweden does have double taxation agreements with many countries and if covered by one of these you will not be charged twice on your income when living in Sweden.

For expats from many western countries including the UK and US state pensions can generally be paid to them direct in Sweden, and they will benefit from any increases in the same way as if they were in their home countries.
