We are preparing for the transition to a new, transparent, and future-proof pension system. This is a huge, complex operation. Fortunately, collectivity and solidarity will remain at the heart of the new system.
For us, pensions are about people, about working people and retirees today, their parents, their children, and their grandchildren. We look far beyond financial returns: pensions are about life, and about living together.
Our culture reflects the way we participate in society. At APG, everyone belongs. Our preparations for a new pension system demand, now more than ever, good collaboration. We must never lose sight of the people in the process.
“We started building a new pension system because the current system no longer caters to the ever-changing job market. Personally, I find it a great pity that nothing has been organized for independent contractors.”
“In 2025 and 2026, when the funds are transferred to the new system, we will have to operate two ‘factories’ for two years. Some of the funds will still be in the current system, while others will already have moved to the new one. How are you going to run things, then?”
“It is important that the transition to the new system with age-independent contributions be balanced and cost-neutral. The pension accrual of affected employees should be adequately compensated.”
