For most of the freelancers in the Netherlands, pensions is still quite an unknown area. Since it's something of the (far away) future it doesn't get much interest or attention.
This can be a pity, because people miss out on some tax benefits as well as the fact that they won't be able to build up a sufficient pension.
BrightPensioen will give a free workshops in which they will explain pension in general. For example, they explain how pension works, what the (tax) benefits are and what the options for a freelancer are, and it won't be a commercial talk about BrightPensioen. As others have experienced, it won't be boring and it usually takes less then an hour. Around 45 min of the workshop is about pension itself, and then they take around 5 minutes to explain the view of BrightPensioen on how pension providers should be organized.
