As a member of staff of the UT you are obliged to accrue a pension with the ABP (Algemeen Burgerlijk Pensioenfonds) pension fund.
This is the pension fund for the government and education sectors.
The ABP pension plan comprises three group pensions: ABP KeuzePensioen (old age pension), ABP Nabestaandenpensioen (surviving dependants' pension) and ABP Arbeidsongeschiktheidspensioen (occupational disability pension).
You can find more information about ABP and the ABP pension plan at www.abp.nl/english/
Each year, ABP sends you a statement of the pension that you have accrued with them. In addition, ABP has an online 'personal environment': via MijnABP (only Dutch) you have direct digital access to your own pension details. You can make calculations and simulate pension options. You can log on to MijnABP with your DigiD.
On www.mijnpensioenoverzicht.nl you can see how much statutory old age pension and supplementary pension you have accrued and with which Dutch pension providers (pension funds and pension insurers). You can access this data with your DigiD.
pension accrual for annual incomes above € 128,810
In the ABP pension plan the compulsory accrual of the old-age and survivors' pension is maximized on a full-time annual income of € 128,810 (reference date: 1 January 2023, pro-rata with part-time). On a voluntary basis you can take out a net pension product* for income above this maximum.
Do you need personal advice about your pension situation? Make an appointment for the consultation that ABP pension specialists organise at the University of Twente. Before scheduling an appointment, we advise you to read the information "ABP pension specialists are here to help" carefully.
(PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE MAIL CONFIRMATION BY ABP, THE APPOINTMENT IS NOT SCHEDULED)
You can cancel the appointment if necessary. The procedure is described in the confirmation e-mail you received. You can also change appointments between one of the parties or change the time of the appointment by cancelling and rebooking.
English online presentation
In 2023, ABP will organise online presentations in English. It addresses questions such as: Can I retire sooner or later? How much pension and State pension do I accrue? How much pension can I have paid out when I retire? What happens to my pension if I work less? What is a surviving dependents pension and what can I do with it? I want to make my own calculations: how does “Mijn ABP” work? For the online presentation, you can register via ABP.
