Why subscribe to pension savings?

Whatever our age, we all hope for happy days after we retire, and maybe even the possibility to enjoy a higher standard of living than today. Please take note of the following...

The state pension of Belgians is among the lowest in Europe

The amount of your state pension depends on many factors, the first of which is your status. In any case, one thing is certain: your pension will probably be significantly lower than your salary upon retirement. Take a look at the average state pension in Belgium today:

  • Self-employed: EUR 840
  • Employed: EUR 1,212
  • Official: EUR 2,341

Depending on your employer intervention, your state pension and your supplementary pension will only cover 50 to 80% of your last net salary. (Source: Pensioengids Netto De Tijd, September 2015)

30% tax break on your payments

The government grants a tax reduction of 30% on the amounts paid into your pension savings, depending on your personal tax situation. Invest up to EUR 940 and recuperate up to EUR 282 on your next tax bill!

A long-term investment spread over time

Depositing small amounts each month has undeniable advantages in the long term: spread your savings throughout the year and watch each payment immediately start to grow.

Do you already receive all tax benefits?

Did you exhaust all possibilities for tax breaks from your pension savings?

No problem: you can continue to save for your retirement! This is called the fourth pillar of your pension. This comes after the first three pillars: state pension, occupational pension (made by your employer) and supplementary pension with tax benefit.
