How high should the occupational pension be?

A good guideline for determining the pension amount is 70 to 80 percent of your net salary. Make sure that you choose a contract with a so-called
a so-called reinsurance guarantee. With these contracts, you can increase your occupational disability insurance without a new health check if your salary increases, you get married or a child is born.
You can also include a dynamic in the contract. This means that the premium increases annually by an agreed percentage, so that your occupational disability pension also increases. This allows you to compensate for inflation, for example.
