No increase in pension on 1 January 2021

28 December 2020

At the end of September 2020 the policy funding ratio was 96.8%. This is too low for us to be able to increase pensions. The HPF has to base its decision on the policy funding ratio: the average funding ratio over the previous 12 months. The policy funding ratio determines whether we can raise the pensions (indexation) or must reduce them (cutback). Given this policy funding ratio there was no other alternative for the Management than to decide not to increase pensions on 1 January 2021. However, the financial position of our pension fund is still adequate not to have to cut back our pensions. Read more on this subject in our blog.
