Retirement might be just around the corner, or maybe you have only just started paying into a pension fund. To be able to secure a carefree future, it is important to know where you stand. Read how Jaap van Deurzen gained insight into his pension with the help of Vixx.
Former reporter Jaap van Deurzen, 68 years old, can start enjoying his retirement. But despite his fruitful career, he never spend much time thinking about his retirement.
Below you can read how Vixx mapped out his fiancial affairs and how Jaap can start his retirement without habing to worry about anything.
Jaap has build up an impressive cv over the years, including working as a reporter for RTL Nieuws for more than 30 years. He is currently busy running his own company, which focusses on media training. He also delivers talks and regularly works as chairman at national conferences. However, Jaap did not know what the impact would be on his pension. “That might sound immature. Almost naive,” he says. “I have been telling stories for over 30 years and just thought things would work out automatically.”
Most people live with a constant focus on the here and now. As a result, their pension will slip into the background. This can lead to a lot of uncertainty – especially when your pension is around the corner. Like in Jaap’s situation. Financial clarity was needed. He knew things were okay, but he did not know what the overall picture looked like and how to organise his pension the best way possible.
Together with Vixx, Jaap mapped out his pension. They did not only focus on the accumulated finances as there are also other aspects to take into account. For example, life annuity policies. It is important to take the time to look into this and to explain which different options there are. As a result, Jaap knows exactly where he stands when he finally decides to stop working. “I thought it could wait, but I would not have been able to work it all out without Vixx.”
Because Jaap knows exactly where he stands financially, now and in the future, he can fully enjoy his retirement. However, Jaap decided to continue working for the time being, as he loves what he’s doing. We therefore adviced him to save part of his pension to be paid out at a later time. Will he be able to finish working completely? Only time will tell!
As you could read, it is of great importance to know what your pension looks like. It is sensible getting an experienced consultant involved to decide what the best option is for you. Vixx knows exactly what the various options are and can therefore find the right solution for the challenge you are facing.
