Below you can see the return which determination of the deposit interest rate is based on and the deposit interest rates applying to P+ Regulations 2019.
|Pre-tax return||14.0 %||6.6|

In November 2020, the deposit interest rate under P+ Regulations 2019 was fixed at 1 percent before pension return tax for 2021. Accordingly, the deposit interest rate was lower than in 2020. The deposit interest rate was fixed at 1 percent in order to continuously build a bonus rate and protect the finances against fluctuations. This must be seen in the light of 2020 which was characterised by COVID-19, including a withdrawal penalty applying to several interest rate groups in the pension fund. In July 2021, the deposit interest rate has been raised extraordinarily due to a return on investments of 14 percent at end-June 2021.
