Accruing extra pension

There is a possibility that your state retirement pension plus the pension you accrue through your employer will not be enough to enable you to enjoy a comfortable retirement. Depending on your personal situation, you can take steps to make extra pension savings. There are several ways of accruing extra pension. 

How much pension have you accrued so far?

Whether it makes sense for you to accrue extra pension depends on how much pension you have accrued so far. Go to your personal online portal to find out what your pension situation is if you are actively accruing pension with a.s.r. You can check your pension situation on the Pensioenschijf-van-vijf (Dutch only) if you are not accruing pension with a.s.r. Alternatively, you can visit mijnpensioenoverzicht.nl.
 
If you know already that you will have a pension gap, we urge you to educate yourself about the different ways of accruing extra pension.

Accruing extra pension
Why accrue extra pension?

Pension amounts generally are reducing due to several reasons. To name just a few:

  • The government is making changes to keep the state pension affordable.
  • The government is lowering the tax allowance thresholds for pension accrual.
  • You might not have accrued pension for all of the years you have worked, for example because your employer did not have a pension scheme, or you are working as a freelancer. You could then find yourself with a pension shortfall.
