New country-of-residence factors as from 1 January 2023
If you live outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland, the amount of your survivor benefit or orphan’s benefit may be adjusted to the price level in your country of residence.
For each country, there is a fixed percentage of the full survivor benefit or orphan’s benefit that can be paid. This percentage is called the country of residence factor. The percentages are reviewed by the government once a year. For a number of countries, a new percentage has been set as from 1 January 2023.
If the percentage for your country of residence has changed, you will receive a letter informing you of the new amount around the end of October 2022.
No country-of-residence factor for certain countries
In line with court rulings, a country-of-residence factor is not applied for certain countries. For more information, see the explanatory notes next to the asterisks (*) in the table and notes 1 to 3 under the list.
