Separating

 

If you and your partner separate, it has consequences for your old-age pension and the partner pension.

 

Your personal retirement savings account can be split and set aside

The moment you get a divorce or end your registered partnership, your pension accrued for the period of marriage or registered partnership may be split and half of it may be set aside for your ex-partner. It depends on what you have agreed earlier or upon divorce. Send us the divorce settlement agreement or alternatively the notary deed. If you have no agreement of divorce, then we may be forced to divide your pension accrued for the period of marriage or registered partnership between yourself and your ex-partner. In this case your ex-partner will have an own pension. We will be never forced to do so in case of cohabitation. Dividing old-page pension is only possible upon agreement explicitly and formally.

 

You are encouraged to let us know within two years what you and your ex-partner have agreed. This ensures that your pension remains up-to-date.

 

 

Your partner pension

The moment you stop cohabiting, get a divorce or end your registered partnership, your partner will no longer be eligible for a partner pension.

 

For further information, please see the pension plan rules or visit the Dutch government's website or the wijzeringeldzaken site (financial calculation tool).

 

Orphan pension

A separation will not have any effect on any orphan pension applicable for your children.
