ITEM recommendations are being implemented

Further step towards unhindered cross-border pension provision

On 18 September Dutch Minister Koolmees answered parliamentary questions about the possibility for pensioners abroad to pass on their proof of life via an app. This concerns a case in which ITEM, together with Pascalle Pechholt (Advisor on Frontier Work for the MEP Jeroen Lenaers), has worked on in favour of persons receiving pension benefits abroad. The current approach responds to earlier ITEM recommendations and sets the stage for the unhindered enjoyment of cross-border pension payments.
