If you are employed in the Netherlands, you have to pay pension contributions. Just before you reach retirement age, STIPP will inform you about the details concerning your retirement. If you worked in the Netherlands for a short period of time during which you paid contributions to a pension fund, you are entitled to purchase your capital. It is only possible if your pension contributions do not exceed € 462,88 gross per year. According to the law, you may buy your contributions within 2 years after your employment relationship ceased. At the same time you lose entitlement to retirement in the Netherlands. Compensation for your contributions will be transferred by STIPP to your bank account within 2 months.
The situation is different if you have worked not only within the territory of the Netherlands, but also in other countries. Then, your contributions will be calculated in the country of your last registered residence.
