More than five hundred participants of the ABP pension fund do not have to reimburse the partner benefit that has been wrongly received. ABP stopped the repayment obligation in June of this year, the fund reports on Wednesday.
MAX Ombudsman previously protested against reclaiming the improperly received allowance.
Ombudsman Rogier de Haan sent a summons to the pension fund in May. The participants could not know that they had received too much.
This concerns 555 pensioners who received too much partner allowance between 2013 and 2019. Without knowing it, the Sociale Verzekeringsbank (SVB) had provided incorrect data.
When the error was discovered, the pensioners had to repay the money from a lower pension, but much had already been spent.
