AOW pension

You move house

Moving house within the Netherlands

You do not have to let us know if you move to a different address in the Netherlands; when you report the change of address to your municipality, they will inform us of your new address. If you start living with someone, however, you must inform us within 4 weeks because it may affect your AOW pension.

New address outside the Netherlands

If you live outside the Netherlands and move to a new address in the same country, you must let us know your new address.

If you move to a different country, the amount of your AOW pension may change. Also, in some countries, the AOW top-up is not payable. There are restrictions on payments of AOW pension and AOW top-up to certain countries. Let us know if you move to another country.

If you are going to live outside the Netherlands

If you move from the Netherlands to another country, you must inform us of your new address.

The amount of the AOW pension may change. Also, the AOW top-up may no longer be payable. There are restrictions on payments of AOW pension and AOW top-up to certain countries. Fill in the country where you will be living below, and see if the move will affect your AOW pension and AOW top-up.

 
What else will change?
  • In some countries, you have to pay tax on your AOW pension. In that case, we will not withhold tax in the Netherlands. 
  • You will be charged a different health insurance contribution. If you receive a health care allowance, this could also change.
  • You will no longer be automatically insured under the Dutch National Survivor Benefits Act (Anw).
