Netherlands -Change of pension after retirement allowed -November 13, 2013

The Supreme Court has ruled that pension conditions can still be changed if people are already drawing their pensions. Employees of insurer Delta Lloyd had a generous scheme for years, under which the pension was guaranteed to go up with inflation. In 2011, the insurer halted the construction, including for those who were already pensioners. The pensioners went to court. An appeal court in Amsterdam ruled in 2012 that the change was not against the law. The highest court has confirmed the opinion of that verdict.
