Additional pension

As part of the Employment Conditions Selection Model (ECSM), you can allocate various sources tax-free for accruing additional pension.


  • Time - a maximum of 10 leave days
  • Money - holiday allowance and/or end-of-year bonus


Accruing additional pension is tax-free as long as the amounts fall within your tax scope.


  • You can apply for additional pension by submitting a completed Additional Pension ECSM application form, signed and accompanied by any documentary evidence required, to the HR department of your organisational unit.
  • You must indicate the amount that you wish to allocate each month in the form.
  • You must also complete and append a General Pension Fund for Public Employees (ABP) form.

Please note

  • Since the money sources decrease your salary, you do not pay tax or social security contributions on these sources. This means that the amount of a benefit under the Unemployment Insurance Act or Work and Income (Capacity for Work) Act may be lower.
  • If you use leave days, they will be used as the first source.
