National Insurance Scheme

Are you covered by social insurance in the Netherlands?

As a rule, if you start living or working in the Netherlands, you will automatically be covered under the Dutch social insurance system. You will build up rights to an AOW old age pension and you will qualify for child benefit. If you pass away, your survivors may qualify for a survivor benefit. You will cease to be insured in the country where you lived or worked previously.

On this page, you can see if you are covered under social insurance in the Netherlands. You can also read our leaflet entitled 'Working in the Netherlands', which you will find on the right-hand side of the page.
