Your additional income - for life.

Your investment guarantees you an additional pension for life - regardless of how the capital markets develop or how old you get. This reliable additional income gives you the security of knowing that you will have enough money, even in old age.

The same pension for your partner, too

You can also take out a retirement pension for a partner. Then the insurance cover then refers to two people: The contractually agreed pension will continue to be paid to the surviving partner - ensuring optimum security for as long as they live. 

Protecting your surviving dependents

No one knows how long they will be able to enjoy retirement. If you wish, you can take out the pension for both partners, so that the surviving person continues to benefit from the payments. What's more, you can arrange for the remaining capital to paid out to the surviving dependents in the event of death.
