Making up missed indexation: how does that work?

Philips Pensioenfonds believes that the pensions that it offers should retain their purchasing power in the long term, so that they still buy as much in the future as they do now. That is our ambition. To realise that ambition, we need to adjust your pension to reflect wage increases (for active members) and increases in prices (for pension beneficiaries and non-contributory policyholders). From 2011 to 2021, however, Philips Pensioenfonds did not fully index its pensions. If you were a member of our pension fund during that time, this means that you missed out on indexation. In 2022, we can make up the difference a little, by granting compensatory indexation. To do this, we must comply with a number of legal rules that apply.
