Taking your Dutch pension to another country

Have you previously worked the Netherlands, and have you built up a pension here? And are you now working in another country? If so, it is possible under certain conditions for you to take your Dutch pension to your new pension institution in the country where you are working. We call this the 'international pension value transfer'.

Pension transfer within the EU

Do you want to take your Dutch pension to your new pension institution in the country where you are working? And is that another EU country? If so, you should first contact your Dutch pension institution. Your Dutch pension institution will judge whether you can take your pension to your new pension institution in that EU country.

If it is possible to take your Dutch pension with you, your Dutch pension institution will draw up a declaration. Once you have received that declaration, you will be able to apply to us for exemption for the pension transfer.

Pension transfer outside of the EU

Do you want to take your Dutch pension to your new pension institution in the country where you are working? And is that country outside of the EU? If so, you should first contact your Dutch pension institution. Your Dutch pension institution will ask De Nederlandsche Bank whether you can take your pension to your new pension institution in a country outside of the EU.

If it is possible to take your Dutch pension with you, De Nederlandsche Bank will draw up a declaration. Once you have received that declaration, you will be able to apply to us for exemption for the pension transfer.
