Changes you need to report
If your personal circumstances change, any payments you receive from us may have to be reassessed. It is therefore important to report changes without delay.
How to report a change
You can send us a letter or an email, or phone our office.
What changes do you have to report?
Below is a list of all the changes you have to report.
1. A change of address
Moving house within the Netherlands
You do not have to let us know if you move to a different address within the Netherlands. When you report the change of address to your municipality, they will inform us of your new address.
New address outside the Netherlands
If you move from the Netherlands to another country, or if you already live outside the Netherlands and move to another address, whether in another country or within the same country, you must inform us of your new address.
If you move to a care home or a nursing home
If you move to a care home or a nursing home, your benefit will be reassessed after six months. If you do not receive a benefit, but only the monthly tax-free amount, you will continue to receive that payment. If you no longer have expenses, any reimbursement or allowances you receive will stop one month after your move. We will contact you or your representative about the possible financial consequences of your move.
2. In the event of a death
If someone who was receiving payments from us dies, we will stop the payments.
If the person who died lived in the Netherlands, you must inform the municipal authorities of the death. They will then inform us. In all other cases, you must report the death directly to us.
3. Living together or separating
If you get married or start living with a partner, we will reassess your pension or benefit. We will also do so if you separate or get divorced. The new amount will apply as from the first day of the month after the month in which your circumstances changed. A provisional amount will be paid until the pension or benefit is reassessed.
4. A change in your income
If there is a change in the type of income you receive, for example, if you have a new source of income, or you stop receiving a particular type of income, we will reassess your benefit.
Changes in your income will only affect the monthly tax-free amount if you are also entitled to a benefit.
5. If you receive a one-off payment
Inheritances or other one-off capital payments that you received after 1 January 2009 will not affect the financial support you receive. If you receive an annuity, you must let us know, but it will not be deducted in full from your benefit if you were still paying contributions while receiving a Wubo benefit.
6. When you or your partner turns 65
When you or your partner turns 65, your benefit will be reassessed. The new amount will apply as from the first day of the month in which you or your partner turns 65. Some time in advance, we will send you forms to fill in about changes to your income, e.g. AOW and other pensions.
