Blog: 3 Days of Pension on November 3, 4 and 5

17 December 2020 | Blog

The 3 Days of Pension is an initiative from the Money Wise Platform to promote responsible financial behavior in the Netherlands and to promote financial resilience in old age.

The 3 Days of Pension is for all Dutch citizens. During the 3 Days of Pension, which takes place every year, pension providers, employers and advisers, among others, communicate about pensions. They are supported in this with promotion materials.

The Heineken Pension Fund is also participating in the 3 Days of Pension. On November 3, 4 and 5 we will provide additional communication by our website www.heinekenpensioenfonds.nl and by Workplace (only available for Heineken employees). So keep an eye on this media.

Pension is of course important throughout the whole year, but during the 3 Days of Pension we give extra attention to pensions. You can check some parts of your pension in advance.

Check your pension

Your pension is important for now and later. Even though your retirement age is still far away, it’s important to get insight now. Therefore check how your pensions are.

Calculate your AOW-age (only applicable for Dutch citizens)

In 2019 and 2020, the age of your State pension (AOW) is 66 years and four months. After that, the AOW-age will rise in steps up to 67 years in 2025. After 2025, the AOW-age will depend on the life expectancy of citizens of the Netherlands. You can calculate your AOW-age. The arrangements of the 2019 State Pension Agreement are taken into account for the calculation.

Take a look at Mijnpensioenoverzicht.nl

On the website Mijnpensioenoverzicht.nl you can see how much pension you have accrued and how high your AOW is. The site also collects information from pension funds and insurers in the Netherlands. If you have worked for several employers, this will give you a complete overview of all your accrued pensions in the Netherlands.
