PME has increased pensions. As of 1 January 2023, everyone will get 6.2% extra. You have received your higher pension in your account for the first time on 23 January. Want to know more about this increase? Our webinar will answer your key questions.
In the coming months, we will pay your pension on the following dates:
It depends on your bank whether or not the money is in your account on the same day.
You will receive a number of overviews from us in the coming period. We have listed them below.
Our funding ratio decreased in the fourth quarter of 2022. The reason is that we increased pensions. In addition, the financial markets are still unsettled. The funding ratio indicates whether we have enough funds to pay all pensions. Now and in the future.
The House of Representatives supports the new pension system. It said so at the end of last year. Now it is up to the Senate to assess the new system. Is the majority of the Senate in favour of the new rules? Then pension funds will have until 1 January 2027 to switch to the new system. PME's pension scheme will also change. Trade unions and employers will decide on its content. In December, we investigated what people find important for their pension. We will share the results of the survey with you soon.
Just like other pension funds, PME pays most of its pensions from returns on investments. Investing works best in a world that is not warming up any further. In a world where people are not fleeing drought, floods and hunger. In other words: a stable return requires a stable world. PME takes its responsibility in this respect, with ambitious climate targets and clear intermediate steps.
In the next edition of PME Magazine, we will answer questions from readers about our climate plan. Do you have any questions? Then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Reader's question climate plan' in the subject line.
