Increasing your pension
Each year, the board assesses whether the fund's financial position is good enough to increase your pension in line with price increases. We call this indexation. Your pension was increased by 3.27% on 1 January 2023.
In September 2022, the policy coverage ratio of 145.8% was above the required capital (approximately 123%) and the indexation threshold. As a result, a full supplement can be granted.
Frequently asked questions
How do I notify a change?
You do not have to notify changes if you live in the Netherlands. Changes of address, notifications of marriage, death or divorce are received automatically by us through the municipality as long as you live in the Netherlands. You therefore do not have to inform us of any such changes. A different e-mail address or account number can be reported in My Details.
I am already retired. What happens to my retirement benefits if I get divorced?
When you divorce, end a registered partnership or end a period of cohabitation, your ex-partner may be entitled to a special partner's pension. He or she will receive this after your death. The level of the special partner's pension depends on various situations. You and your ex-partner will be informed of this in writing.
