Annual statement

If you live in the Netherlands and receive a pension from Belgium or Germany, the Belgian or German pension agency will send you an annual statement. 

Read more about the annual statement and about what you can do if you have not received the statement.

The Belgian Federal Pension Service will send you the annual statement (called ‘fiscale fiche’) by post. 

If you have not received the statement, you can ask the Federal Pension Service to send you a copy. You can ask for a copy as from 19 April.

The German pension agency (Deutsche Rentenversicherung, DRV) will send you the annual statement by post.

The Bureau for German Affairs (BDZ) does not send annual statements.

If you sent an online request for an annual statement to DRV previously.

In that case, you do not have to do anything. You will receive the annual statement automatically each year before the end of March.

If you have not sent a request for an annual statement to DRV previously.

In that case, you must ask DRV to send you the annual statement, which is called ‘Rentenbezugsmitteilung zur Vorlage beim Finanzamt (Versichertenrente)’. If you receive a survivor benefit from DRV, the annual statement is called ‘Rentenbezugsmitteilung zur Vorlage beim Finanzamt (Hinterbliebenenrente)’.

If you receive more than one pension/benefit (‘Rente’) from DRV, you should ask for a separate annual statement for each Rente.
