Notification periods

Pension recipients are obligated to notify their pension insurance provider of all circumstances that may be relevant to their pension (e.g. change of address, longer periods of residence outside Austria, imprisonment for periods exceeding 1 month) within 2 weeks.

The assumption of paid employment and changes to income must be reported within 7 days (within 14 days by recipients of an orphan’s pension).

Persons in receipt of income support must also report all changes to the income of their spouse/registered partner, to the income of any children covered by the income support benefit and to the income of any parents who live in the same household, within 7 days.
