Anw survivor benefit

Anw benefit if you live outside the Netherlands

We will pay or continue to pay your Anw benefit if you or your child lives or starts living in a country with which the Netherlands has an agreement on the verification of entitlements to benefits, including Anw benefits.

This applies, for example, to the countries of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.

You can also receive an Anw benefit in a number of other countries, but usually at a reduced rate. The amount of the benefit will be adjusted to the cost level of the country where you live. For each country, there is a fixed percentage that you can receive of the maximum Anw benefit.

Enter the country where you or your child lives or is going to live to find out whether the Netherlands has an agreement with this country and whether your Anw benefit will be adjusted to the cost level of this country.
