They are long-term savings plans designed to build up a fund which will be converted into pension income when you retire. The Plans are considered to be Qualifying Personal Retirement Schemes, so you may qualify to receive a tax rebate based on the amounts you save.

Under current legislation, you may receive the equivalent of 25% of the amount you save each year, up to a maximum of €500 if you are at least 18 years old, and are domiciled and/or tax resident in Malta. Tax rebates are also available if you make contributions on behalf of your spouse.
