Working on our pension… or rather: working on a pension that fits in with the new pension. We don’t do that alone. We do this together with employers and employees. On 30 May, the Senate approved the Future Pensions Act (Wtp) legislative proposal. This means the new pension system will now really come into effect.
Minister Schouten postponed the latest commencement date of the new pension scheme from 1 January 2027 to 1 January 2028. Pensioenfonds PGB is still aiming for a transition as of 1 January 2027. But why work on a new pension now? A lot has to be done before that time, though. By us. And by you, the employer. And we’re going to do that together. And with us, other stakeholders such as VNO-NCW, MKB-Nederland, AWVN, FNV, CNV, VCP, Pensioenfederatie, Stichting van de Arbeid, Adfiz and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
Why new pension rules?
The Dutch pension system is one of the best in the world. Poverty among the elderly in this country is among the lowest in the world.
We have been listening closely to the wishes of employers and sectors, so we know what employers consider important elements in a contribution scheme. We have included these wishes in our new pension schemes.
