You may be able to take your pension abroad with you. You can transfer it to the Pension Scheme of the European Communities (PSEC), for example, to which the European Parliament, the European Commission, and the European Court of Auditors belong. You can also transfer your pension to an international organization (such as NATO, the UN, or Europol) or to a pension provider within or outside Europe. Check with them if they will submit a request for the international transfer of accrued benefits for you. After receiving the request, ABP will return a statement showing the value of your accrued pension rights.
Pension funds abroad and some international organizations will need to complete a ‘Model Questionnaire for the International Transfer of Accrued Benefits’. This organization will then forward it to ABP:
6401 JL Heerlen, The Netherlands
We will check whether the requirements for the international transfer of accrued benefits have been met.
If you wish to transfer pension benefits accrued with ABP to another pension provider within the Netherlands, you must submit an accrued benefits transfer request to your new pension provider. One condition for the benefits transfer is that the financial situation of both ABP and the other pension provider must be sufficient for this purpose.
