Net old age pension

You can choose to accrue capital with the UPP over the part of your salary that is over € 128,810. With this capital you will buy a net pension on your retirement date from an insurance company of your choice.

Your official retirement age is 67 years and 3 months or your earlier AOW age. You are however free to arrange for your pension to start before then. You will receive the net old-age pension that you purchase for the rest of your life.
The amount of pension you receive depends mostly on the level of contributions you have made and the investment results. The rate offered by the insurance company from which you purchase your pension also has an effect.
