End of cohabitation
You split up after having lived together. That also means you will have to arrange some matters concerning your pension. Is your partner registered with the pension fund? If so, you will have to deregister your partner again. That is necessary in order to calculate your pension.
What should you do?
- Deregister your partner from the pension fund.
- Include a copy or scan of the notarial deed showing that your cohabitation agreement has ended.
Special partner’s pension
After your relationship ends, your ex-partner is entitled to part of the partner’s pension: the amount of partner’s pension that has been accrued up until you divorced. We call that the special partner’s pension.
You have 2 options
- If you agree to this settlement
Have the agreements recorded in the divorce agreement and send us a copy. The pension fund will make further arrangements for the special partner’s pension.
- If you and your ex-partner are making alternative arrangements
Have these agreements recorded in the divorce agreement and send us a copy. The pension fund will make further arrangements for the special partner’s pension.
A partner you have cohabited with is not entitled to part of your retirement pension (equalisation).
