Receiving your AOW pension outside the Netherlands

If you get an AOW pension and you live outside the Netherlands, it may take longer before you receive your pension payments in your bank account. This will depend on your bank and the country where you live. 

Most payments are sent out on or around the 1st and 15th of the month. We usually pay AOW pensions in euros. But sometimes we pay the pensions in the currency of the receiving country.

If you and your partner use the same account outside the Netherlands, your payments will be added together and paid as a single amount.
