AIO supplement

What we mean by income and assets

You can get an AIO supplement if your income is below the minimum income level. Income includes:

  • AOW pension
  • salary from an employer
  • earnings from self-employment
  • a benefit

If you live with a spouse or partner, their income will also be taken into account.

Your personal assets

By assets, we mean the value of everything you own, e.g. savings, a car, a caravan, a holiday home, jewellery and antiques.

If you own a house, a houseboat, a trailer or a plot of land outside the Netherlands, that will also count as assets.

All such possessions together are subject to a limit of:

  • € 6,120 if you live alone
  • € 12,240 if you live with a partner or a child under 18

Ordinary consumer goods such as furniture, a washing machine, a fridge or a television do not count as assets. If you have debts, you can deduct them from the value of your assets.

An owner-occupied house, houseboat or trailer in the Netherlands

If you own a house, houseboat or trailer in the Netherlands, you can calculate the value of your home by deducting the outstanding mortgage debt from the value of the home. 

If the remaining amount is less than € 51,600, you can get an AIO supplement.

This amount does not count towards the maximum amount of:

  • € 6,120 if you live alone
  • € 12,240 if you live with a partner or a child under 18.

If the amount exceeds € 51,600, you may still be able to get an AIO supplement. In that case, you should ask us for more information.
