The value of your pension
Because prices keep rising, your money is worth less every year. After all, the same amount of money will buy you less. This means that your Pensioenfonds Detailhandel pension also decreases in value. In order to prevent this, the pension fund tries to increase pensions every year.
Pensioenfonds Detailhandel pays the increase in your pension from the achieved return on investment. However, an increase is only possible if the pension fund has sufficient money. This means you are not automatically entitled to an increase. The pension fund does not reserve money for an increase and no premium is paid for it.
