The pension plan for the Self-employed

ING Private Supplementary Pension for the Self-Employed

What is a PSPS?

The Supplementary Private Pension for the Self-employed is a personal life insurance plan allows you to:

  • Make the most of tax breaks. Under certain conditions, you can deduct all the premiums invested as business expenses, and according to your income, recover up to 50% of premiums invested.
  • Reduce your future social security contributions. Since your premiums are tax deductible, your professional income, which serves as the basis for calculating your social security contributions, is also reduced.
  • Build up a solid capital for your future.

Who is the PSPS for?

  • Belgian residents who pay income tax in Belgium.
  • Self-employed people, both as a main and an additional occupation.
  • Assisting spouses.
