​​A flexible and future proof group insurance solution​


Entitlements allocated separately to each individual plan participant

It's up to you, as employer, to select the category of employees eligible for the group insurance plan and to set the budget. The defined contribution premium can be expressed as a percentage of the salary or as a lump sum euro amount. This way, you'll know the exact cost of the plan upfront

You also get to determine upfront how much of the yield earned on the premiums will be allocated to your staff members each year. The balance held in each plan participant's individual account will accrue based on the return earned on the premiums. 

The defined contributions premiums plus the allocated yield make up the individual entitlements for each plan participant.

Collective financing of the pension plan

The premiums for the plan participants will be paid into a collective financing fund used to build up the individual entitlements. Depending on your objectives and your risk appetite, you have the option to link this collective fund to:

our wide range of Branch 23 funds with no guaranteed return (i.e. direct investment on the financial markets)​combination of Branch 21 & Branch 23


You also have the flexibility to adjust your investment strategy and change how you invest the future premiums to take advantage of the latest market conditions.



Quickly to

Innovative financing solution for maximum peace of mind​


Pension@ease automatically sets aside a buffer that you, as employer, can use to finance the statutory minimum return or an additional yield for your staff members. This way, you can be confident of a stable group insurance financing. As the buffer grows by holding back a share of the return on the financing fund, it feels effortless and has no impact on the budget

The yield formula:

The yield formula is predefined in the pension plan regulations and determines how the annual yield on the collective fund will be split between the plan participants' accounts and the buffer set aside by the employer. Depending on your preferences and objectives, you can choose from a number of formulas that, for example, set objectives in terms of the yield to be allocated to your staff members and/or the size of the buffer.
Hybrid investment of your financing fund
For the investment of your financing fund, you can combine the security of branch 21 with the yield potential of branch 23.

Hybrid investment of your financing fund​


The premiums for your plan participants will be paid into a collective financing fund that finances your Pension@ease group insurance plan. Interested in combining the security of Branch 21 with the higher potential upside of Branch 23? No problem! 

The guaranteed interest rate1 in Branch 21 insurance offers you security and at the same time efficiently reduces the volatility (or fluctuating returns) of your collective fund investment. With Branch 23, on the other hand, involves direct investment in the financial markets, so while this financing solution offers a higher potential return, it also comes with higher risk. Fortunately, with our broad range of Branch 23 funds to choose from, you can adjust your risk exposure to match your risk appetite. A flexible mix of both will likely give you best of both worlds.

1The interest rate can be revised upwards or downwards according to the "savings account" principle (otherwise known as the "vertical method").​
