Retrospective UPO Meetings September 2021

9 November 2021

On September 15 and 16, so-called UPO meetings were held by the Executive Board of the Pension Fund. These were interesting meetings with a total of about 60 participants.

The meetings are organized after the participants of the pension fund have received their annual Uniform Pension Statement. They provide the Board with another opportunity to come into contact with the Fund's participants. And it offers opportunities to catch up and receive clarification on certain points.

See below for the frequently asked questions during the meetings.
