Voeks

Voeks is the association of Shell retirees. Voeks is open to future and current Shell retirees. In the Netherlands, the association has 11 regions that organise their own activities.

Advocacy
Voeks also operates as spokesperson for Shell retirees by having regular contact with the Shell Pension Funds and Shell Nederland. Voeks also participates in the KNVG, which tries to exercise influence on political decision-making regarding pensions, retirement benefits and the healthcare system.

Activities
Voeks aims to strengthen the connection between former employees by organising various activities (computer courses, sporting events, excursions, visits to museums, talks about current topics, day trips and other forms of leisure activity). All 11 regions publish their programme in Voeksnieuws (Voeks news), which is published 10 times a year.

Welfare work
Voeks also works hard for the welfare of (older) Voeks members. Nationally, 250 volunteers are active in this work. Members or their partners who need support are visited by the contact persons. They also offer help in finding government points of contact and in referrals to healthcare/care organisations.
