We pay your pension in 2021 on the following days:
Every year, the board assesses whether the fund's financial position is good enough to adjust your pension to the rise in prices. The financial position of the pension fund is good enough to grant a partial supplement from 1 January 2021. The pensions of all members are increased by 0.24%.
Do you receive a WAO / WGA disability pension? Then it will be increased by 1.88% with effect from 1 January 2021.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is AOW?
The AOW is a basic state pension for people who have reached their AOW pension age. If you live or work in the Netherlands, you will almost certainly be insured under the AOW scheme. AOW pension is paid by the SVB.
A number of statutory contributions are withheld from your gross pension payment. This includes wage tax and health insurance contributions.
If you live abroad while receiving a pension from us, we will assess your details each year in order to ensure you are still alive and are entitled to the pension. This is necessary because we do not receive a notification from foreign agencies on your death.
The assessment is made via the Register of Non-Residents (Registratie Niet-Ingezetenen, RNI). If the details from the RNI are insufficient, you will receive a request in October to complete and return the ‘Life certificate’ form. The form consists of two parts. You must fill in the first part yourself, and have the second part filled in by a competent authority. Competent authorities are:
- A notary
- Your municipality
- Justice of peace
- The local police
- A Commissioner for Oaths (Australia, Canada, New-Zealand, USA, United Kingdom and South Africa)
- An embassy or consulate
- Attorney at law
Return the form on time.
Please make sure that we receive the form not later than 31 December to ensure you will continue to receive your pension without interruption. You can return the form in the following ways:
- Upload via MyStaplesPension. Go to My data and choose Upload documents.
- By e-mail to email@example.com
- By surface mail to Pensioenservice, Postbus 123, 1180 AC AMSTELVEEN, The Netherlands.
If you wish to return the form in digital format, please make sure that your document is in jpg, jpeg, pdf or png format and that it is not larger than 8 MB. In some cases we will need the original form, for example:
- if the competent authority has used a dry stamp (an impression in relief with a stamp for which no ink is used) with the signature
- if we specifically request this
