Temporary retirement pension and AOW
December 3, 2019
New agreements were made about the state pension age in June 2019. The state pension age will not rise in 2020 and 2021, it will remain 66 years and 4 months. You may therefore receive an AOW earlier than you previously thought. Are you now receiving a temporary retirement pension from Pensioenfonds Detailhandel? Then you will receive a AOW pension for a while and a temporary retirement pension. What’s up with that?
Temporary retirement pension continues
The temporary retirement pension actually ends when you receive an AOW pension. Now that you receive an AOW pension earlier than expected, the temporary retirement pension could therefore stop earlier. Pensioenfonds Detailhandel has decided not to change anything about the term of the temporary retirement pension.
If you receive an AOW earlier than expected
Do you get an AOW earlier than you expected as a result of the new agreements? And do you now receive a temporary retirement pension from Pensioenfonds Detailhandel? Then the temporary retirement pension will continue until your original state pension age. The temporary retirement pension does not therefore stop on your new state pension date.
Arrange your allowances properly!
Do you receive a supplement from the government such as rent or healthcare allowance? This may change or be canceled due to the above changes, because you will receive a AOW pension and a temporary retirement pension for a while. Therefore, timely report the correct income data to the Tax Authorities. You can find everything about benefits at www.belastingdienst.nl/toeslagen.
