Overview topicality pension contract:

interest rates, working longer and more personal pension

Many interests play a role in the reform of the complex Dutch pension system. The process takes time and involves a lot of discussion, in which a number of hotly discussed topics can be named. Netspar aims to map the possibilities for a good old-age provision, now and in the future, and to contribute to a well-informed pension debate. With this overview Netspar provides background information and interpretation of elements from the current pension discussion, from our own research on a new pension contract, interest rates and valuation of pension entitlements, more personal pension (also relevant for the evaluation of the Improved Defined Contribution Scheme Act (Wet verbeterde premieregeling) and the increase of the age for first-pillar government pension (AOW) and a longer working life.
