Partner’s and Orphan’s Pension

In addition to your Retirement Pension you also build up a Partner’s Pension and Orphan’s Pension. In the event of your death your partner is entitled to a Partner’s Pension and your children to an Orphan’s Pension.

If you have a joint household (if you are living together with your partner and have nothing official registred) it is important that you register your partner with us. Read more about a joint household and partner’s pension.

Partner’s Pension is approximately 70% of the Retirement Pension you would receive if you were to accrue pension with the Heineken Pension Fund up to the date of your retirement. In the event of your death after retirement your partner will receive approximately 70% of the Retirement Pension you have accrued.

The Orphan’s Pension is approximately 20% of the Partner’s Pension. Each child receives this up to the age of 25.

The amount of Partner’s Pension and Orphan’s Pension is set out in your Uniform Pension Statement (UPO) which is normally sent to your message box on, and on
