It is possible that your pension fund paid the contribution under the Healthcare Insurance Act (Zvw) to the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration. This is a requirement if you live in the Netherlands. If you live abroad, you have to pay a healthcare contribution to the CAK. That means your pension fund should have paid the money to us instead of to the Tax and Customs Administration. You will be able to see this on your payslips.
If your pension fund did in fact pay the ‘income-dependent Zvw contribution’ to the Tax and Customs Administration, you can claim that back. You have to do this by letter or using a form from the Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst.nl).
