Let your voice be heard! How much pension uncertainty do you want to accept? Published: 27-02-2023

The Dutch House of Representatives approved the Future Pensions Act on December 23, 2022. The act still needs to be approved by the Senate. Despite all the discussion and uncertainty as to whether the act will come into effect on July 1, 2023, PDN still needs to continue with preparations.

Survey: How do you view your pension?

If we are to prepare this well we also need to find out your opinion as a member. That’s why every principal insured will soon receive an invitation to take part in an online survey about pension uncertainties. If we have your email address, you will receive an email from us in the week of March 6. We send those emails ourselves from So this is not 'phishing' and check your folder 'Junk mail' if you didn't receive the email. Participants for whom we do not have an email address will receive the invitation by post.

What will the survey be about?

PDN invests for your pension. The investment results contribute to the size of your pension, which means that the size of your future pension is not certain. Everyone handles this uncertainty differently. We would like to know what you think is important with respect to your pension. Does certainty come first for you? Or do you think it’s okay for the pension fund to take a responsible risk with its investments if this increases the chances of a higher pension?

Don’t worry; you don’t need to be an expert in pensions and investments to complete the survey. Let your voice be heard!

Why is this survey important?

The outcomes give the Board an idea of how you and other pension fund members view investment risks. This will help us in developing the fund’s investment policy.

The survey is anonymous

An independent agency, IG&H, will be conducting the survey for us to ensure that we achieve the most objective overview possible. Of course, your answers will be treated in the strictest confidence and will be processed anonymously.

Information about the results

We will inform everyone about the results of the survey later this year.
Thank you very much in advance for completing the survey!

Do you want to take part in other online surveys by email in the future?

You can continue to receive your letters on paper, but the invitations for surveys by email.Then visit ‘My PDN Pension’ on our website and enter your email address under ‘My details.’ If you prefer to receive all mail digitally, you can also indicate this there.

Your opinion counts!
