How much pension you will receive from us mainly depends on the amount of salary you have earned and the number of years you have been a member. You receive retirement pension for as long as you live.
You can see how much retirement pension you have accrued if you log in to My Pension. This is also shown on your Uniform Pension Statement (UPO).
The pension scheme in which you are a member is a defined benefit agreement. Each year, you accrue pension on a part of your salary up to € 66,261 (in 2021) that you have earned in that year. You do not accrue pension on your whole salary. Your pension administrator takes account of the AOW you will receive from the government when you reach your AOW age. The part of your salary on which you do not accrue pension is known as the state pension offset. You accrue retirement pension at the annual rate of 1.875% of your salary less the state pension offset.
If you have accrued pension at more than one employer, you can see all the pension you have accrued at www.mijnpensioenoverzicht.nl.
