Greatly changed society

A lot has changed in our society in recent years. The demographics, economy and labour market have all changed. People are getting older. There are fewer people in work than there are pensioners. People no longer work for an employer all their lives, but change jobs more often or start their own business.

It is important that the pension system is in line with this. This is why the Cabinet, together with employee and employer’s organisations, have decided on a pension agreement with new arrangements on pensions and the state pension (AOW).
