Proof of being alive

1 November 2021

Please provide your 'proof of being alive'

Are you living abroad while receiving a pension from us? If so, we will assess your data every year to make sure that you are alive and entitled to the pension. This is because in the event of your death we do not receive notification from foreign bodies. The assessment takes place via the Non-Resident Registration (RNI). Are the details from the RNI insufficient? Then in October you will receive a form entitled 'Proof of Living' (attestation de vita).


Fill out the form or have it filled out

The 'proof of life' form consists of two parts. You must complete the first part yourself and have the second part completed by a competent authority. Authorized bodies include a notary public, municipality, embassy or consulate. On the website of the Government of the Netherlands you can enter in which country you live, and where you can go to have the second part filled in.

Choose your country or area

Upload the form via MyStaplesPension
