What is deducted from your AOW pension?

We deduct tax and/or national insurance contributions and health insurance contribution (‘ Zvw contribution’) from your AOW pension. The remaining amount is the net amount you receive in your bank account.

If you live in a care home or another institution, we can also deduct a personal contribution for long-term care ( Wlz) or social support ( Wmo).

If you live outside the Netherlands, the specific amounts deducted from your AOW pension will depend on the country where you live.
