Capital withdrawal

When you retire you can have some or all of your pension capital paid out in cash. If you choose to have all of your pension capital paid out in cash you will no longer have any entitlement to any further benefits from us from the time you retire. This means that any retirement-linked children’s pensions or survivors’ pensions in the event of death are forfeited. If you only withdraw a partial amount, your capital and the pension benefits calculated on the basis thereof will be reduced accordingly. The capital withdrawal will be taxed separately from your income using a reduced capital tax rate.

In order to process a capital withdrawal we require a written application at least one month prior to your retirement. If you are married or living in a registered partnership then your partner must co-sign the application with certification from a notary. Changes to the submitted application may be made up to one month prior to your retirement and must also be co-signed by your partner (with certification from a notary).

Purchases made in the three years prior to the withdrawal may not be taken out as a lump sum for three years (three-year vesting period). We will still pay the remaining departure benefit (less purchases made in the last three years plus interest), but purchases made in the last three years must be retroactively taxed as income.
