How we calculate your Anw benefit

  • Imagine that you earn €900 per month
  • The first €826.80 is not taken into account so we subtract this amount from your income:
  • €900 - €826.80 = €73.20
  • This leaves €73.20. We take 2/3 of this amount into account, that is: €48.80
  • The amount deducted from your Anw benefit is therefore €48.80

Income that is not deducted from Anw benefit

Some types of income are not deducted from Anw benefit.

For example: maintenance/alimony or a survivor pension or benefit from your partner’s annuity.
