Belgium -Social partners agree on pension schemes -October 15, 2015

Trade unions and employer organisations have reached an agreement in the so-called ‘Group of Ten’ on the difficult question of workplace pension schemes and a number of other pending issues. If the deal is implemented the guaranteed minimum interest for workplace pensions will fall to 1.75% (from an actual the minimum rate of 3.25% for employee and 3.75% for employer contributions). However, this figure could increase depending on the long-term interest rate. A maximum figure of 3.75% has been set.
