Information about Brexit

The United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. This has been 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 live in the UK and you receive a Dutch old age pension (AOW pension) or will start to receive an AOW pension before 1 January 2021, or you receive a Dutch survivor benefit (Anw benefit) or child benefit for a child who lives in the UK, or you are working in the UK on the basis of an A1 certificate, nothing will change for you in 2020 because the EU rules will still be applicable.

Before the end of the transition period, we will send you a letter about what will happen as from 1 January 2021.
