Anw-shortfall insurance

He or she might also be entitled to state benefits under the Dutch Surviving Dependants Act (Algemene Nabestaandenwet, ‘ANW’). You may wish to take out ANW shortfall insurance with us if your partner does not have an entitlement, or not a full entitlement to ANW benefits.

Frequently asked questions

Would you like to know more?

You pay a personal contribution for your pension. This premium is deducted from your gross monthly salary each month. At this moment, you pay 2% of your pensionable salary if you work for Philips. Signify employees who fall under the Flex scheme pay 5% of the pension base to the employer. Signify employees who fall under the Flex-ES scheme pay 2% of the pension base to the employer. Have you taken out the Anw-shortfall insurance? Then you also pay a personal contribution for this.

Philips Pensioenfonds tries to increase your accrued pension each year with the increase in wages within Philips (also for those working at Signify or Versuni). This is our ambition, as described in our indexation policy. However, this indexation is not an automatic given. Every year, the Board of Trustees decides whether your pension can be increased, and if so by how much. Whether or not we can realise our ambition depends on what the law permits, based on our financial health. Another factor is that we want to be in a solid financial position in 2026 when we switch to the new pension system. The indexation needs to be prudent with that in mind too.
