Shoes, Leather and Leatherwear Industry Branche

At the beginning of 2019, Bedrijfstakpensioenfonds voor Schoen-, Leder- en Lederwarenindustrie (PSL) joined Pensioenfonds Detailhandel. From 1 January 2019, they will transfer the value of all (accrued) pensions. This means that, from that moment on, employees from this branche will accrue their pension with Pensioenfonds Detailhandel and pensioners will receive their benefits from this fund.

Why this switch?
PSL is transferring because the costs per participant at Pensioenfonds Detailhandel are lower and pension interests are better represented.  PSL feels that their participants face a better future with Pensioenfonds Detailhandel.
