How can Pensioenlogica help you?

Pensioenlogica can help you with all sorts of issues related to pensions and retirement. These include:

  • Amendment procedures concerning pension schemes and a practical solution to compensate for any differences (including drawing up a pension transition plan);
  • Renewal of the pension contract, the administration agreement;
  • Drawing up your own pension scheme;
  • Investigating whether or not the employer is free in its choice of pension or if an obligatory affiliation to an industry-wide pension fund applies, in which a study into the sphere of operations will show whether or not such an obligation exists;
  • Pension solutions in the event of dismissal, in those cases where pension-related issues can offer a helping hand to the practice of dismissal. Both the employer and the employees benefit from information that is easy to apply in practice with regard to the following issues: alternatives with regard to transition compensation; the possibility of retaining preliminary pension (VPL entitlements); the benefits of voluntarily continuing a pension; how to advise an employee wishing to take advantage of an early retirement option (e.g. through a generation pact, vitality pact), etc;
  • Qualitative and quantitative comparisons of insurance companies with pension contribution institutes and pension funds; and
  • Informing self-employed entrepreneurs and director-majority shareholders of all alternative pension options that ‘one-size-fits-all’ products cannot offer.
