Key figures

The pension regulations contain some key figures. These figures are established by the board each year. It concerns:  

  • The allowances
    If the financial position of PCN is sufficient, the accrued pensions and the pension benefits are adjusted to the increased cost of living. 
  • The contribution for the pension accrual
    The employer and the employee together pay contribution for the accrual of the pension. This contribution is a percentage of the pensionable earnings (the maximum pensionable salary minus the offset). 

Pension agreements 2024-2026
Mid December 2023, the unions and the RCN director reached a negotiated agreement on behalf of the minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations about the terms of employment for civil servants in the Dutch Caribbean for the period 2024 up to and including 2026. This also includes the pension. At this moment, PCN is evaluating the financial viability, practicality, tax structure, and legal admissibility of these pension agreements. In anticipation of this evaluation, PCN will apply the provisional key figures as shown below for 2024. Also, PCN will include in the evaluation the agreement to increase the pension accrual over the past 3 years.

After concluding the evaluation and discussing it with the unions and RCN, PCN will further inform you.
