Your partner for this pension scheme is:
– a person to whom you are married, or;
– a person with whom you have a registered partnership, or;
– a person with whom you have a notarial cohabitation contract.

If you are not married and you do not have a registered partnership or notarial cohabitation contract, but you do have a non-registered partnership with your partner, and you have shared a household with your partner for more than six months, he or she will be your partner for the pension scheme. An extract from the Municipal Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen – BRP) will be required to demonstrate that you have been living together for more than six months.
If a person with whom you are living together is your sister, brother or a relation by blood or affinity in the direct line, that person will not be your partner for the pension scheme. You can only have one partner at any time for the pension scheme.
