Will I remain insured in the Netherlands if I go to live and work abroad temporarily?

If you go to work abroad, you can usually no longer be insured in the Netherlands. In some cases, however, you need to retain your health insurance. That is the case if you remain insured in the Netherlands under the Long-Term Care Act (Wlz). This will be assessed by the Sociale Verzekeringsbank (SVB).

Do you want to know if you will remain insured under the Wlz in the Netherlands? Then contact the SVB.
