Vitality pact scheme

The vitality pact scheme is intended by the university to allow you to reach pension age in good health. Read here what the scheme entails.

Structure of the scheme

If you have a full-time contract and have five years before you reach state pension age, if you have a full-time contract, you are entitled to reduce your working week to four or three days, and with a part-time contract to do so in equal proportion. Depending on the scheme you choose, you will receive one or two days of special leave with partial continued payment of your salary: 85% in the event of four days and 70% in the event of three days. Your pension accrual will remain unchanged, although you will receive fewer days’ leave. Further details can be found in Art. 6.17 of the collective labour agreement CAO-NU.

Conditions for participating

You may begin participating in the scheme from 1 January 2019 to 1 July 2020. The conditions for participating can be found in Art. 6.19 of the collective labour agreement CAO-NU. The manner in which the shorter working week is scheduled can be found in Art. 6.18.
