New home or a different postal address
We regularly receive questions from participants whether they should change their address themselves when they move. That depends on whether you are moving within the Netherlands or abroad. Some participants also want to change their postal address. For example if they get help with their pension matters from their children. Then it is possible to change the postal address (yourself). On this page you can read everything about these topics.
A new home address
Do I have to provide a new address? Read this information
A new home in the Netherlands
We will automatically receive your new home address after you move. We receive this from the municipality where you register. So you do not have to notify us of a change of address.
A new home abroad
If you move abroad or change address abroad, then we will not receive your address automatically. You should communicate this to us yourself. This can be done by sending us a signed letter with the new home address. Send the letter by post or e-mail or, via the most secure option, upload the letter in MijnPPF.
As an alternative, you can register in the Non-residents Records Database (RNI), if this is possible for you. If you submit your change of address there online, using the ‘Moving Abroad Service Portal’, we will receive your address automatically again.
About pension and living abroad
The basic assumption in this situation is that your pension will remain with Philips Pensioenfonds. In practice, international value transfer is almost never feasible. When you retire, Philips Pensioenfonds will start paying you your pension in your new country. If you live abroad or move to another country, alternative arrangements will apply to you for some matters – matters that are important for how your pension is paid. To find out more, download the brochure ‘Receiving a pension while abroad’ from our website.
No matter where you live, Philips Pensioenfonds will make sure that you are paid your pension. Of course this means that we need to be able to contact you, so you will have to notify us of your new address before you move to your new country. If you live abroad or move to another country, alternative arrangements will apply to you for some matters – matters that are important for how your pension is paid. To find out more, download the brochure ‘Receiving a pension while abroad’ from our website.
A new home and your income. Read this information
A new home? Check your pension!
When you move, it is a good moment to also look at your income in the future. If you take out a mortgage, your financial advisor will also ask about this. For example, the question ‘how high your monthly costs are at the time of retirement’ is also discussed. After all, it is important that you can continue to pay your monthly payments after retirement.
Your financial advisor will ask for your Pension Overview. This overview will be made available in MijnPPF under ‘Pension Mail’. You can also download an overview on the national website www.mijnpensioenoverzicht.nl (in Dutch). If you have accrued pension rights with other pension funds besides Philips Pensioenfonds, this website is helpful. You will then receive the total value of all your pension accruals.
