Register new employees
Do you as employer wish to register an employee as a participant of APS? Then, it is important that this employee qualifies as a participant on the basis of the articles 4 and 5 of the Pensioenlandsverordening Overheidsdienaren (national ordinance pension of civil servants). Furthermore, it is important that the employee has been employed by you for at least six months and has undergone a medical examination prior to the start of his or her employment. The employee has to be minimally 25 years old in order to be registered as a participant. Before that time the employee is a prospective participant.
Are you employing someone who is 62 or older? In that case, this employee can no longer be registered as a participant of APS as the pension accrual ends at the age of 62.
In order to be able to register your employee, you have to send in a completed and signed application form.
With the form you have to include the following information about the employee as annexes:
- Copy of a valid passport or other identification document
- Copy of the decision or the labor contract on which the registration is based
- Copy of the results of the medical examination
- Extensive extract from the Population Register.
As soon as we have processed the new registration, we send an ‘Intreebericht’ (entry statement) to the employer. We ask you to send a copy of this to your employee.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE: The pension plan of APS is probably going to change in 2019. The social partners reached an agreement about this in 2017. The changes still have to be approved by Parliament.
