If you change your employer and move to a different pension scheme, you can choose to take your accrued pension with you. This is known as a value transfer. You apply for this to your new pension administrator. Make sure you are properly informed in advance. Whether value transfer is a good decision or not depends on factors including the financial situation of your current pension administrator and your new pension administrator.
If you decide not to apply for a value transfer, your pension will remain with the Staples Pension Fund and will be paid to you with effect from your 67th birthday. You will no longer pay a contribution to the Staples Pension Fund and from then on you will accrue pension in your new employer’s pension scheme.
Is your accrued pension higher than € 503.24 per year
Then you decide whether you take your pension with you. This can be beneficial, for example, if your new employer has a better pension scheme. Or maybe you want all pensions with one executor. Let your new pension fund know that you want to take your pension with you. You can take out your pension with your new pension fund. Do you not want to take your pension with you? Then your pension will remain with Staples Pension Fund. Would you like help with making your choice? We like to help you.
