AOW pension

When will you receive your AOW pension?

Your AOW pension will start on the date you reach your AOW pension age. 

The Pension Reform Deal concluded between the Dutch government, employers’ organizations and trade unions includes proposals to slow down the pace at which the AOW pension age will be raised. The bills to change the AOW pension age have yet to be adopted by the Dutch Parliament. This will be done in two steps. 

Step 1: the raising of the AOW pension age until the end of 2024

This bill has already been adopted by the Parliament. The AOW pension ages until the end of 2024 are as follows:

  • in 2020 and 2021, the AOW pension age will be 66 years and 4 months
  • in 2022, the AOW pension age will be 66 years and 7 months
  • in 2023, the AOW pension age will be 66 years and 10 months
  • in 2024, the AOW pension age will be 67 years

Step 2: the raising of the AOW pension age from 2025 onwards 

This bill has yet to be adopted by the Parliament. If you were born after 31 December 1957, your AOW pension age is not yet known because it depends on life expectancy. If you enter your date of birth, you will see what your estimated AOW pension age is under the Pension Reform Deal.
