That is not necessary. Our pension scheme applies the “onbepaald partner” (unknown partner) system. This means that partner’s and orphan’s pensions are insured, regardless of whether or not there is/are a partner and/or child(ren).
At the time of death, we will request the details of any surviving dependents via the Municipal Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen – BRP). The partner’s and/or orphan’s pension will be paid on the basis of those details.
