Partner's and orphan's pension

Partner's and orphan's pension

In addition to your retirement pension, you also accrued partner's pension and orphan's pension. If you die, your partner is entitled to a partner's pension and your children will receive an orphan's pension.The partner's pension is 70% of the retirement pension that you would have received if you had accrued pension in the Staples Pension Fund until retirement.

The orphan's pension is 14% of the retirement pension. Each child receives this until they reach 21 years of age. If both parents have died, the child receives double the amount. 

The amount of the partner's pension and the orphan's pension is stated on your Uniform Pension Statement (UPO) and at www.mijnpensioenoverzicht.nl and My surviving dependants. Further information is available at Partnership.
