AOW pension

Can you work and still keep your AOW pension?

An AOW pension is a basic state pension for everyone who has reached the AOW pension age. AOW pensions are not affected by other income, whether from work or other sources. However, if you also receive a supplementary allowance because your partner is still under the AOW pension age, the supplementary allowance may change if your other income changes.

If you receive an AIO supplement in addition to your AOW pension, we will look at other income you receive.

For information about changes in tax and national insurance contributions, you should contact the Tax Administration.
