On 1 January 2017 we made a few adjustments to the Pension Plan Rules. Here you can read what these adjustments are.
Until 1 January 2017, you were required by law to continue working if you wanted to defer your pension until after your state retirement age. To qualify for deferral, you needed to send us a statement from your employer confirming your continued employment.
From 1 January 2017, you can choose to start your pension after the effective date of your state pension. Even if you are not (or no longer) working.
Some of our (deferred) members were entitled to a pre-pension. The initial intention was to pay out this temporary retirement pension from age 62 to 65. The board has decided to convert the pre-pension into extra retirement pension effective from 1 January 2017. An exception applies to (deferred) members who turn 62 in 2017 and those who objected to the conversion in time.
Other changes effective from 1 January 2017 are as follows:
