I am getting a partner
Your partner may be entitled to a partner’s pension and/or supplementary partner's pension. However, certain conditions do apply.
Are you going to get married or are you in a registered partnership?
If you live in the Netherlands, there is no need for you to let us know about your move. We will receive this information from the authorities via the Key Register of Persons (Basisregistratie Personen (BRP)). Are you living abroad? Please let us know if this is the case. Use the Sign up partner form (pdf) to let us know.
Are you cohabiting with a cohabitation contract?
Your partner will only receive a partner’s pension if you have registered your partner with us. You can do so by using the Sign up partner form (pdf).
Are you cohabiting without a cohabitation contract?
Your partner will not receive a partner's pension.
Note: Make arrangements about the division of your pension
You can make separate arrangements in your marriage settlement or partnership agreement about the division of your pension if you should separate. Read more about what you need to do when you separate.
