AOW pension


You have been detained or imprisoned

If you are sent to prison, a detention centre or a closed treatment facility, you will no longer be entitled to receive an AOW pension. Your pension will stop after the first month of detention or imprisonment.

If you have been released from detention or imprisonment, you can start receiving an AOW pension again. You must send us your certificate of release.


If you have been sentenced to a community service order, or have been receiving compulsory psychiatric treatment, you can continue to receive your AOW pension as usual.
