What to do if you have a complaint?
Complaints about how Philips Pensioenfonds administers the pension plan rules should be sent to the Managing Director. All complaints must be made in writing. Your complaint will be handled by the Executive Board, assisted by Philips Pensioenfonds’s legal counsel.
Complaints should be sent to the following address:
Mr J. Kemme, Managing Director
C/o Philips Pensioenfonds
5600 JZ Eindhoven
Your letter should describe your complaint in as much detail as possible, and state the date, your name and your address. Lastly, please remember to sign the letter. If you have authorised someone to file the complaint on your behalf, that person should sign it.
Once Philips Pensioenfonds has received your complaint, it will handle it according to the following procedure:
- Within 10 business days after we receive your complaint, we will send you a letter of confirmation, which explains when the Executive Board will handle your complaint.
- You will then receive a further letter within 6 weeks after your complaint was originally received, informing you what decision the Executive Board has made, and on what grounds.
A detailed description of the complaints procedure is published here (in Dutch).
If you believe that the Executive Board has made the wrong decision, you can contact the national office that deals with complaints about how pension plan rules are administered: the Pensions Ombudsman. It is important to bear in mind that the Pensions Ombudsman will only handle your complaint if it has first been reviewed by Philips Pensioenfonds. The Ombudsman will determine whether your complaint has merit, and based on its findings will advise on the question of whether your complaint is valid. The Pensions Ombudsman does not handle complaints about substantive aspect of pension plans.
The address for the Pension Ombudsman is:
Attn. Henriëtte de Lange
2509 AN Den Haag
Telephone: 070 – 3 499 620

I now receive a retirement pension. What happens in the event of my death?
Did you have a partner at the moment you retired and did you opt for an retirement and survivor's pension? Then the partner that you had at that time is entitled to a survivor's pension. Did you only opt for a retirement pension? Then there is no pension for your partner. Do you have children who are younger than 21 years ? Then they are always entitled to an orphan's pension.
I now receive a disability pension. What happens in the event of my death?
Because you are still accruing pension if you are disabled, your partner is entitled to a survivor's pension after your death. Your partner must then be registered with Philips Pensioenfonds. The amount of the survivor's pension is based on the assumption that you would participate in the pension scheme until your retirement date.
My partner passed away. Do I have to do something?
If your partner is registered with Philips Pensioenfonds and lives in the Netherlands, Philips Pensioenfonds will be notified automatically by the municipality in the event of your partner's death. You do not have to inform Philips Pensioenfonds of this . If you live abroad and your partner dies, you must notify us yourself.
I am retired and have a new partner. Is he/she entitled to a survivor's pension in the event of my death?
No, if you die after your retirement and you have a new partner, then this partner is not entitled to a survivor's pension from Philips Pensioenfonds.
