Agricultural and Green Sector; new BPL pension scheme is coming

May 31, 2024
Pension gap

We must all switch to the new pension system. There must be a new pension scheme, because there is a new pension law. The unions have negotiated a new pension scheme for BPL Pension with employers in the agricultural and green sectors. De Unie has made agreements. In June we ask our members to vote with a paid membership. We first organize a webinar to explain the agreements made.

  • What does that mean for your pension with BPL Pensioen?
  • What changes? And what remains the same?
  • Do the rules apply to all accrued and incoming pensions?
  • When will something change?
  • Can I choose to remain in the current pension scheme?

We will answer all these questions and more in a webinar on June 3.

The changes therefore also concern the participants of the pension fund. This is a drastic process. Trade unions have negotiated this at length and intensively together with employers in the various sectors that are affiliated with the BPL. In the end we came out well. We have now reached the point where we have made agreements to switch to the new pension system. We call this the Transition Plan.

It is quite complicated because not everyone is concerned with his/her pension every day and what it will all mean. A lot remains the same, but then again it doesn't. We are transitioning from a system in which everyone takes care of everyone, to a system in which everyone gets their own money, but with a collective safety net. It is not easy to explain everything in a short piece of text. That is why we have organized a webinar to explain this. Make sure you are there, it concerns your income when you retire.
