If you have DigiD with SMS verification, you can log in with SMS verification or by using the DigiD app.

You can manage more and more of your affairs online, including your affairs with the SVB. This often involves personal or privacy-sensitive information. Whether you want to claim an AOW pension or simply report a change, protection of your personal data remains paramount. The Dutch government ensures that login procedures are secure, to protect your information. 

The easiest way to log in securely is by using the DigiD app. Alternatively, you can log in by entering a username and password and an SMS code. In either case, you will need to have a smartphone. If you need help managing your affairs or if someone else needs your help, you can use ‘DigiD Machtigen’ (DigiD Authorisation).

‘DigiD Machtigen’ allows you to authorise a person of your choice to manage your affairs online at My SVB. You must never give your personal login details to anyone. The person you authorise must have a DigiD themselves and use their DigiD to log in to My SVB.
