In the calendar year following the (year of) passing away of our client, we will draw up an annual statement. This states how much the client has paid in healthcare contributions. We will send this annual statement to the heirs.
Has our client paid too much and are you an heir?
Then we will ask you for proof that you are an heir and what your bank details are. But you will read that in the letter we are sending you. We may also ask for this information with the annual statement.
Has our client paid too little and are you an heir?
Then we will ask you (or the joint heirs) to pay the outstanding amount.
You are not an heir?
Then we will investigate whether the deceased client has heirs and who they are.
When will the annual statement come and will it be final?
We first need to know the world income of the deceased person in the year of death. We will receive this information from the Tax and Customs Administration in the Netherlands. In case we have not received this information yet, you will first receive a provisional annual statement.
It may also be the case that old annual statements are still open. These claims will be transferred to the heirs.
