Dutch pension sector launches mobile app
Dutch pension providers on Thursday launched a mobile application PensionChecker. The app provides Dutch pension schemes' participants and retirees with a full overview of their pension. Hence the users can see the state of their old age state pension (AOW scheme) - that they will earn from the age of 67 as of 2021 - and their supplementary pension net income. They can also see whether and how much they can save themselves and what are the financial consequences of retiring earlier, explains PensioenFederatie, the association of Dutch pension schemes. The free application, which has been developed by large pension funds including ABP, PFZW, PME, PMT and PensioenFederatie, has been downloaded over 15,000 times within a few days.
