It is currently not possible for non-residents of the Netherlands to apply for a DigiD code via our website
Due to a technical problem at DigiD, it is currently not possible for SVB clients living abroad to apply for a DigiD code via our website. DigiD is working to rectify the problem as soon as possible. It is not yet clear how long this will take.
AOW pensioners living outside the Netherlands who were not entitled to a 'KOB top-up for senior taxpayers' will now receive backdated payments of KOB top-up for the months they missed. AOW pensioners in the Netherlands have already been receiving the KOB top-up.
