The new pension: what you need to know

On our way to a new pension system

You may be wondering about the new pension rules. For years, there have been calls that the current pension rules must be adjusted. The government, various committees, the pension sector and other stakeholders have been in talks with each other for some time. What are the results of all those talks? And perhaps you simply want to know how the new system will affect you. We will answer these and other questions on this page.

What is the reason for 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.

What stays the same and what changes?

The starting point is: don’t change a winning team. In other words: the strengths of the current pension system will remain unchanged.

When do the new rules come into effect?

The timeline takes you through the steps we will take in the coming years.
