I am going to live with someone
The consequences of living with a partner
If you start living with someone, this could affect the amount of pension or benefit you receive from the SVB.
The following pensions and benefits may be affected:
- Old age pension (AOW pension)
- Survivor benefit (Anw benefit)
- Child benefit and TOG care allowance
- AIO supplement
- Remigration benefit
What we mean by 'living with a partner'
The SVB will consider you to be living with a partner if you:
- live in the same house with someone who is 18 or older, and you
- share the household costs or
- look after each other
We refer to the person you share a house with as your 'partner'. This could be your husband, wife or friend, or a brother, sister, or grandchild.
Voluntary insurance and secondment
If the SVB has issued you with a secondment certificate or if you pay voluntary AOW or Anw contributions, get in touch with our Insurance Office (Kantoor Verzekeringen). We will be happy to inform you about how starting to live with someone will affect your situation.
