Employers and trade unions determine new pension scheme

A pension is a term of employment. As such, trade unions and employers discuss the content of your new pension scheme. As the law is changing, keeping your current pension scheme is not an option.

The new pension act is based on the 2020 pension agreement. This legislative proposal is still to be approved by the House of Representatives and the Senate. At the moment, the legislative proposal is being discussed in the House of Representatives. However, the Future of Pensions Act is taking more time than expected. As a result, the legislative proposal will be put to a vote later. It is not yet known when this will be. For the time being, the new act is still intended to take effect on 1 January 2023.

Discussing which pension rules suit PME best

Meanwhile, we as a pension fund are talking to employers and trade unions. We inform each other of what the legislative proposal is all about. Afterwards, employers and trade unions will start negotiations. They will discuss which pension rules suit PME best. Employers and trade unions must record the agreements they make in a new pension scheme. At that time, we will know how their agreements will affect your pension.

What does Pensioenfonds PME do?

As soon as the content of the pension scheme has been determined, we as a pension fund will look at what we need to change in our pension administration. For this, we will adjust our pension systems. After that, we can also tell you what the new pension scheme means for you personally. Your current pension at PME will be transferred to your new pension scheme. Except if that is very unfavourable.

We aim to have your new pension scheme take effect at the beginning of 2025 or at the latest at the beginning of 2026.

We will regularly keep you informed about developments. On 15 September we held a webinar. We want to organise another webinar early next year. Please let us know your email address if you haven't already done so. We will then let you know the exact date and time of the webinar. Also follow the updates on our website. That way, you will stay informed.
