Moving abroad while receiving your pension
Are you moving abroad during your retirement? Nothing changes with respect to your gross pension. There are however a number of other things you need to consider.
Each year, the Board assesses whether the Fund’s financial position is strong enough to increase your pension in line with the increase in prices. This is known as indexation. Your pension was not inreased from January 2021.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I notify a change?
You do not need to notify changes to us if you live in the Netherlands. Changes of address, a marriage, death or divorce are notified to us automatically by your municipality as long as you live in the Netherlands. You do not have to notify us in this case. You can register a different e-mail address in My details.
I have already retired. What happens to my pension benefit if I divorce (or separate)?
If you divorce, end a registered partnership or end a period of cohabitation, your former partner may be entitled to special partner’s pension payable to them on your death. The amount of special partner’s pension depends on your specific situation. You and your former partner will be informed accordingly in writing.
