Retirement Pension – Tentative Assessment
A person may request a Contributory Pension Tentative Assessment to find out what the pension income is on retirement.
What you’ll get
A tentative assessment will present the applicant with:
- A clear picture of what the social security pension would tentatively be.
- An opportunity to pay missing social security contributions in case of gaps in Social Security Contributions along the years, to improve the pension rate prior to reaching the pension age.
- Different pension rates at different pension ages.
- Whether one would be eligible for a pension and more.
General eligibility criteria:
- The applicant must be at least fifty-five (55) years of age prior to reaching the pension age.
- An applicant who was, or is currently employed and paid social security contributions prior to the applicant’s pension age.
- A fresh Tentative Assessment can only be requested by an insured person under the Social Security Act (Cap. 318.) only after a lapse of eighteen (18) months from a previous pension rate estimate.
- There is no specific documentation required, as the tentative pension rate is calculated on the information currently held by the Department of Social Security.
- If the claimant was, or is currently employed outside Malta, proof of contributions paid abroad would be required.
