You have switched to Pensioenfonds Detailhandel, welcome! Here you will find all the information you need.

Roadmap for a smooth transition

As of 1 January 2018, you will provide your employee data via the Pensioenfonds Detailhandel employer portal.  We have already mapped out the information that’s relevant for you. Find out how to give us the required data using the roadmap below.

Act concerning accelerated retirement and lifecourse savings schemes (VPL) as regards to employers in the furnishing industry

The pension scheme for your employees is being managed by Pensioenfonds Detailhandel from 1 January 2018 onward.  This means that The VPL scheme (conditional pension) is now also administered by Pensioenfonds Detailhandel. After the discontinuation of the early retirement and pre-pension scheme in 2006, this scheme was agreed between the collective labour agreement parties, so that your employees can retire early.  This transitional arrangement applies to participants who work in the furnishing industry and were born between 1950 and 1975. Employees receive this supplementary pension if they meet all the conditions.


In May 2018, Pensioenfonds Detailhandel calculated and invoiced the contribution with retroactive effect (to 1 January 2018). From May onwards, 1% contribution will be charged each month. The premium for this compulsory scheme remains 1%, the percentage that you were used to paying.

The distribution of this percentage is:

  • employer contribution: 73,62%
  • employee contribution: 26,38%

The duration of the scheme is 15 years and ends at the end of 2020. As from 1 January 2018, the VPL premium is shown separately on the premium invoice. In 2017, the total contribution of Pensioenfonds Wonen was 23.1%, including the 1% VPL contribution. In 2018, this will be 21.6% for the Pensioenfonds Detailhandel’s basic scheme. Furthermore, there will be an additional 1% for the VPL scheme.

Halfway through December we sent you a letter about the switch to Pensioenfonds Detailhandel and TKP as pension administrator and what this means for you. You now have to deal with two administrators for a short period of time. Syntrus Achmea will complete the 2017 financial year and TKP will carry out the administration from 2018 onwards. During this period, TKP will aim to provide you with the best possible service.

Once you are logged on, a start screen will  appear showing an  overview of your employer data. We ask you to complete a one-time check of this information, add details if necessary and confirm this. Is there any incorrect information that you cannot change? Please contact the Employer Desk.  Why is confirmation necessary? If you do not confirm your data, you will not be able to provide data for 2018. You will then receive an ex officio invoice for your company. This means that we will send you an invoice based on an estimate. In the start screen, you can also authorise your administration office and issue direct debit. No staff? In that case you still need to confirm the start screen so that the correct information is available in our system.

From 2 January 2018, you can use the new employer portal submitting data regarding your employees. You can also submit your details to TKP using the Pensioenaangifte  (Pension Declaration), which can also be uploaded.

You will also find the aanlever- en notadata (delivery and invoice dates) for your pension declaration on our website. Check with the supplier of your payroll administration package whether they have set up the Pension Declaration for the move from Syntrus Achmea to TKP Pensioen. It may be that you have to arrange something in the package yourself. Ask your payroll administration package supplier about this. The software supplier can provide more information about, for example, setting up the package.

Once the Pension Declaration has been sent, you will see the status of your data delivery under the ‘File Delivery’ tab.

Data and mutations concerning 2017 (or before) can still be submitted through You can log in using the old Syntrus Achmea log-in data. Please send us your 2017 details  as soon as possible, this can be done until 10 February 2018 at the latest.

You may have outsourced your pension administration to an administration office or accountant. If your administration office is not yet visible in the start screen, you must authorise the administration office or the accountant to submit data for you. You can do this by selecting your administration office from the available list in the start screen.

Only when you authorise an administration office on your start screen, will they receive their own user name and password to gain access to the employer portal. Is your administration office not available in our system? If so, please give their name to TKP. This can be done with the form ‘Machtiging administratiekantoor’ (Authorisation administration office)’.

We receive your pension details every month (or every four weeks). Based on this information we will send you an invoice. All data must be received by TKP before the final uiterste aanleverdatum (delivery date).

Between 14 and 16 March you will receive the first invoice for 2018. This invoice is based on the employee details that you have submitted on the employer portal and through the Pension Declaration. It is therefore important that you always submit the employee data in full and on time. From now on, you will receive the invoice for the contribution to Pensioenfonds Detailhandel on a monthly (or 4-weekly) basis. You can find the specification on the werkgeversportaal (employer portal).

The main changes:

  • The premium will be determined monthly and collected on the basis of current data (both advance payments and final settlements have been abolished).
  • We apply progressive cumulative calculation (VCR). See our calculation examples for more information.
  • If you do not deliver in full and/or on time, you will receive an ex officio invoice. We will then base the invoice on an estimate.

In the first quarter you will receive two invoices from Pensioenfonds Wonen, the final settlement for 2017 and the invoice for the extra premium of 1.5%. You must pay these to Pensioenfonds Wonen. You will then receive the invoices from BPF Detailhandel for pension accrual from 2018 onwards.
