How do you accrue your pension?
You can accrue your pension in three ’ways’
  • AOW: the pension you get from the government if you live or work in the Netherlands. You can get information about the state pension (AOW) from the Social Insurance Bank.
  • Pension by pension fund Robeco. You accrue this pension with Robeco Nederland B.V. or OCE Nederland B.V.
  • Pension that you arrange yourself. For example with annuity or bank savings.

Each year you accrue a part of your pension

Each year you accrue a part of your pension. The final pension that you accrue is the total amount of all those parts. This is called an average-salary scheme. This rule applies for salaries until the end of scale 100 (2021: € 83.218). The Robeco pension fund invests your pension in a socially responsible way.

Your salary is possibly above this limit. If so, then you accrue on the salary portion above (pension) capital in the gross and/or net surplus plans (UOP). These are defined-contribution schemes. Robeco Nederland B.V. and OCE Nederland B.V. provide a premium for this on a yearly basis. Your premium share is invested based on your personal risk profile. The Robeco pension fund does this in a socially responsible way.

You will receive a pension when you reach the age of retirement. The amount of the pension is based on your pension accruement in these three plans. You will continue to receive a pension for as long as you live.

Your pension accrual

Your pension accrual in the average-salary scheme amounts to in 2021 1,738% of your gross salary to the maximum of scale 100 (2021: € 83.218) minus the deductible of € 14.600 (full-time). The available premium in the gross and net top-up plans (ARP) depends on your salary and age. This premium is invested and makes up a (pension) capital on your date of retirement, which you can add to your retirement pension.

How definite is your pension in the average-salary scheme?
The amount of your pension is not certain

The amount of your pension is not certain. Namely due to the fact that pension fund Robeco has the following factors to consider:

  • People are getting older on average. We must therefore pay a pension for longer.
  • When interest rates are low, pension fund Robeco needs more money to pay the same pension.
  • Investment returns may be lower than expected.
