Gross amount €527.97 €527.97
Tax and national insurance contributions (‘Loonheffing’) €0.00 €195.25
Net amount €527.97 €332.72

Income from work, such as gross wages, an end-of-year bonus or profit from enterprise are partly deducted from the Anw survivor benefit. The amount of €527.97 includes the top-up of €17.67 per month. The deduction for other income is made from the Anw survivor benefit without the top-up. The amount of Anw benefit used for our calculation therefore is €510.30 gross per month.

This is how it works:

  • The first €1,190.70 of the gross income is disregarded.
  • Two thirds of the income above that amount is deducted from the Anw benefit
  • If you earn a gross amount of €2,300.49 or more per month, that will leave only €510.30 gross per month in Anw benefit.

If you have a gross amount of €1,930.56 or more per month, that will leave only €510.30 gross per month in Anw benefit.

Not all types of income are included. If you receive a survivor benefit from another organisation or company, it will be disregarded. This is also true for income from assets, holiday allowances or payments from an annuity you took out yourself.

You are considered to be in a care relationship if you:

  • live with someone because they need extensive care, or
  • live with someone because you need extensive care yourself.
The holiday allowance is €61.94 gross per month.
