If you enter into retirement, you may continue to make use of the UT's group healthcare insurance with Menzis. Any partners may also stay on the group health insurance. The group discount on the healthcare insurance premium remains applicable and you can continue to use the special UT insurance package.
If you are living abroad, you will not generally be able to retain your Dutch healthcare insurance when you retire. If you are an inhabitant of a EU/EEA member state or a treaty country, you are entitled to medical care in your country of residence according to the laws of that country. In order to achieve this, you have to register with the National Health Care Institute by completing an A-121 form. You will also pay a contribution (premium) to the Health Care Institute. If you are living in an EU/EEA member state or in Switzerland, you are also entitled to medical care in the Netherlands in addition to medical care in your country of residence. To obtain access to medical care in the Netherlands, you need to request a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from the Health Care Institute. More information can be found at the National Health Care Institute website.(Dutch only)
