The Netherlands is on its way towards a new pension system. Society is changing. We switch jobs more often and live increasingly longer on average. The number of people working in proportion to the number of pensioners is dropping. The pension contributions have risen. And the prices rise faster than the pensions. The current rules for pension are no longer a good fit for today’s world. That is why the rules need to be adjusted in order for us to obtain a pension system that is better suited for the current times and the changes that are still to come. We keep the good things of our current system: we continue to invest together and to share the risks together.
Being a pension administrator, we believe it is important that the pension agreement leads to an even better pension for the Netherlands. And that the new Pensions Act is explainable and enforceable. This page contains information on the why, how and when of the ‘Law on the Future of Pensions (Wtp)’.
