Roadmap for a smooth transition

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.
