Pension Scheme

In 2015, a new pension scheme was introduced as the successor to the scheme that was offered by the Stichting Beroepspensioenfonds voor Zelfstandige Kunstenaars AENA [Foundation Sector Pension Fund for Independent Artists] up to 2013.

The new pension scheme is applicable for copyright owners with a minimum Buma income of € 1,069 in 2013 and € 1,090 in 2014, and will be financed through the Fund for Social and Cultural Services. The financial base for this scheme is determined each year by the Board. Over 2,500 copyright owners qualify for this new Pension Scheme for the years 2013 and/or 2014.
