Salary exchange

Last changed: 17 December 2021

If you have an indefinite-term employment at SLU and are aged 23 or older, you can salary exchange your pension. Salary exchange means that a deduction is made on your gross salary. The money is then placed in your pensions saving account. It is up to you how much money is deducted, but there is a maximal and minimal limit.

Salary exchange is beneficial because your gross salary becomes lower, meaning less taxes. The employer’s fees also decrease.

If your monthly salary is below the limit for acquiring general pension (SEK 45 865 /month for 2021), salary exchange is not always beneficial because it means that your general pension becomes lower.
