Everything about the new pension system

The new pension system will provide future-proof pensions that are better suited to the times we live in. In order to comply with the Future of Pensions Act (Wtp), all pension schemes in the Netherlands have to be adapted. The Wtp will most likely enter into force on 1 January 2023. From then on, the pension scheme may be adjusted. The pension scheme must comply with the Wtp by 1 January 2027. We understand that this raises questions. On this page, you will find explanations and links to articles about the new pensions system.

In short: What will change?
At BeFrank, the new pensions system entails two changes for most pension schemes:

  • In the current schemes, the pension contribution increases as your employees grow older. In the new schemes, every employee, young or old, has the same contribution rate.
  • In the new pensions system, the percentages and definitions within the surviving dependants’ pension have been changed to a fixed standard.

The animation below explains the main changes in three minutes.
