I am years old,
I have been self-employed for years,
and my yearly taxable income is €60.000, excl VAT
I have absolutely no visibility on my pension 😞 no one is able to tell me what my pension will look like when I retire.
State pension is ridicously small. I hear that it will be lower than the poverty line in Belgium
I am not sure what my options are. Between State pension, complementary pensions and private investments (incl. crypto), I don’t know how to choose.
We tell you how much you should exactly invest in your free supplementary pension every year to optimizes your taxes to the max.
We also warn you in case you invest more than is beneficial for your taxes.

After you retire, you receive from the State a minimal legal pension. Unfortunately, this minimal pension won't cover all your needs.
The good thing is that you can top it up with a specific scheme called the "free supplementary pension for the self-employed".
You contribute every year to your future pension. At pension time, you have the guarantee to benefit from the capital invested and interests. You can receive it in the form of a quarterly annuity or the capital at once.
It is the safest investment you can make for your pension as the capital is guaranteed.
You can contribute yearly up to 8.17% of your net earnings, as long as your contribution remains under the €3,302 ceiling (2021). That contribution is 100% deductible. Whatever you pay above the ceiling is no longer deductible.
In short, a supplementary pension gives you:
Any self-employed professional who pays social contributions equivalent to the social contributions of a full-time self-employed can opt for a supplementary pension.
It depends on whether you choose to benefit from quarterly annuities or the capital at once when you retire.
In most cases, we will recommend you opt for the capital: you are in control of all the money you invested over the past years. You make sure you pay taxes on 80% of the total. If you choose quarterly annuities, you end up paying taxes on 100% of the total.
Yes, of course!

We are looking forward to answering your questions regarding your pension. What we don't do is selling pension plans. We can point you to brokers or insurance companies, whose job is selling those pension plans. This is what we do when we tell you about Easyvest, our trusted partner.
The complementary self-employed can only invest in a free supplementary pension plan if they pay social contributions equivalent to the ones that full-time self-employed pay.
The State will pay you a legal pension based on your main revenue, e.g. as an employee.
You can then top up this legal pension with your personal investments. Unfortunately, you cannot deduct them as the free supplementary pension plan.
