The Swedish National Pensioners' Organisation (Swedish: Pensionärernas riksorganisation, PRO) is an advocacy group in Sweden representing pensioners. It's the largest pensioners' organisation in Sweden with 399,303 members as of 31 December 2006.

PRO describes itself as "politically independent" but has since its founding had close ties to the Swedish Social Democratic labour movement. The current chairman is Lars Wettergren, a former Social Democratic politician.

PRO was founded on 1 March 1942.
