Information about Brexit

The United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. This will be followed by a transition period that runs from 1 February to 31 December 2020. During this period, nothing will really change and EU rules will continue to apply as before. The EU and the UK will use this period to make new agreements for their future relationship after 31 December 2020.

If you receive a Dutch old age pension (AOW pension) or survivor benefit (Anw benefit) and you are resident in the UK, or if you receive child benefit for a child who is resident in the UK, or if you work in the UK with an A1 certificate from the Netherlands, nothing will change for you in 2020 because the EU rules will still be applicable.
