What is my AOW state pension age?

Your AOW state pension age depends on your date of birth. You will receive Dutch state pension (AOW) from the day on which you reach state pension age. If you live outside the Netherlands, it is up to you to apply for AOW state pension in good time. You should do this 6 months before you reach your AOW state pension age.

Fill in your date of birth to see when you will start to receive your AOW state pension.


If you have questions about your estimated AOW state pension age, contact the Social Insurance Bank (SVB).

If you live in Morocco, South Africa, Spain, Suriname or Türkiye, contact the SVB office at the embassy.
