Consultation launched on 2019 Pensions Collection Bill

At the beginning of May 2018, the Dutch government launched a public consultation on the 2019 Pensions Collection Bill. Under the current draft, the accountable or stakeholders’ body will be given the right to advise on or consent to a fund’s policy on the mass transfer of existing small pension rights. The body will not be given any rights relating to the actual value transfers. The government also wants to change the transitional provisions on deadlines for redemption of small pension rights.
