Apply for a DigiD before you leave

You should apply for a DigiD before you leave the Netherlands, as this may not be possible after you have left. Your DigiD will allow you to handle your affairs with the SVB quickly and easily online via My SVB. For example, you can report changes online, or upload documents instead of having to send them by post. If you want to log in to My SVB, go to ‘Login’ and choose how you wish to log in.

Open a Message Box at the MijnOverheid website. The Message Box is your online personal letterbox, where you can receive and save electronic letters from us and other Dutch government institutions. If you have a DigiD, you can open a Message Box at
