Genencor Netherlands

You participate in the closed career average pension scheme of the Genencor Netherlands section if you joined Genencor International B.V. before 1 June 2015.

This page sets out the key elements of your pension scheme. You will also find details of where to ask questions about your pension scheme and how to submit changes to your personal information and situation to DEPF. Finally, we present the pension committee of the Genencor Netherlands section to you. The pension committee supervises the administration of the pension scheme and maintains contact with the Board of Directors of DEPF.

Did you join Genencor International B.V. on or after 1 June 2015? Then you do not accrue any pension with DEPF. Instead, you participate in the defined contribution scheme administered by ABN AMRO Pensioenen.

Your pension plan is summarised in the Pension 1-2-3.

The Pension 1-2-3 consists of 3 layers. Layer 1 summarises the pension scheme. Layer 2 contains more information on all the topics in layer 1. Finally, layer 3 contains the underlying documents, such as the pension rules. You can download Layer 1 of your Pension 1-2-3 here.
