Pensions and a Cappuccino!

The Hague, October 17, 2013

Research by Wijzer in Geldzaken showed that just 10 per cent of employees in the Netherlands take the time to find out about their individual pension situations...

From a global perspective the situation isn't very different. According to Aegon's own 2013 Retirement Readiness Research only 20 per cent of respondents felt 'fully able' to understand financial matters.

Starting in October, Aegon's pensions experts will be travelling between companies in the Netherlands with a mobile coffee unit, to chat to employees about their pensions. Using this approach, Aegon hopes to make pensions more accessible and encourage more people to come for a chat. The activity will continue until the start of the Aegon pension week on Monday 4 November.
