AOW pension

When will you receive your AOW pension?

You will receive AOW pension from the day you reach your AOW pension age. 

The AOW pension age is being gradually increased to reach 67 in 2021. As from 2022, it will be linked to life expectancy. If people continue to live longer on average, the AOW pension age will be raised in 3-month phases. In 2022 and 2023, the AOW pension age will be 67 years and 3 months. 

The AOW pension age will remain at 67 years and 3 months in 2024, because average life expectancy has stayed more or less the same.

If you were born after 30 September 1957

If you were born after 30 September 1957, your AOW pension age will be at least 67 years and 3 months. Your exact AOW pension age will be decided about 5 years in advance. We advise you to check your AOW pension age every January. Fill in your date of birth to find out when your AOW pension will start.
