Moving in with your partner, getting married, having children... These are probably not the moments in your life when you are most likely to be thinking about your pension. Nevertheless, it is important to know where you stand with your pension whenever your life enters a new phase. Today marks the start of the Pensioen3daagse, an annual 3-day event that is all about pensions. Around the country, the focus will be on this year’s topic: ‘Everything ready for your retirement? Make sure now!’ While you do not need to pay mind to this call to action every day, or even every month, it certainly becomes relevant at times of major change in your life.

You have probably already heard the news: the government, employer organisations and unions recently settled on the details of the Pensioenakkoord, or ‘National Pension Agreement’. The idea is that this new national agreement will lead to new legal requirements for Dutch pension plans. We can imagine that you have all kinds of questions. In fact, we have been asked many of those questions already. How does this affect my pension accrual? Will it affect people who are already drawing a pension? What exactly will change?

We regularly tune in to hear what our members have to say. This is important: Philips Pensioenfonds is weighing one interest against another all the time, and making choices that impact our members’ pensions. It is therefore our responsibility, we feel, to obtain your input on matters that affect your pension and the pension fund. We do this not only by informing you, but also by asking for your opinion and seeking out a dialogue with you.

While it is probably a subject that you would rather not think about, do you ever consider what will happen if you die? Do you know what the financial situation will be for your partner and children? The Pensioen3daagse, an annual 3-day event that is all about pensions and that starts today, will draw the nation’s attention to this issue. Unfortunately, almost everyone has all heard some tale or another where the arrangements were not as complete as expected. Our flex pension plan includes arrangements for your partner. However, this requires action on your part too!
