Can I combine my pension with other allowances?
The pension cannot be paid if you receive an allowance on account of:
- illness, disability or unemployment;
- career interruption or diminished working activities;
- a conventional early retirement.
A disability allowance or a similar allowance granted in another country, will be considered as a retirement pension.
If the pensioner’s spouse receives one or more such benefits or allowances, the pension can only be paid as for a single person.
If you benefit at the same time from a retirement pension and a survivor's pension as salaried person, the survivor's pension may be reduced if a certain threshold is reached.
Can I combine my pension with a professional activity?
As pensioner you may exercise a professional activity, providing the earnings do not exceed a certain ceiling. If you receive a family pension (a pension as a married person), your spouse may also work, but the earnings ceiling also applies.
