Premium discount for older employees is still a great way to reduce labor costs in 2012 and 2013.
The premium discount can in two situations:
- Premium discount when hiring an employee of 50 years or older who comes from a benefit situation. For example, WW or WAO.
- Premium discount when employing an employee of 62 or older (62+ scheme)
The premium discount amounts to a maximum of € 6,500 per year per older employee. For part-time employment, the formula is valid (hours per week / 36 * € 6,500). For more than 36 hours, of course, the maximum amount.
The premium discount can be applied for a maximum of 3 years. After that you are no longer entitled to this discount. Even after you have been out of service for more than 3 months, you can no longer apply premium discounts to this employee.
NOTE: in 2013, the premium discount for the retention of older employees will be 62+!
TIP1: Make use of this premium discount and ask the applicant whether he or she comes from a benefit situation. 1 day benefit is enough!
TIP2: Do not forget to request a target group statement from the UWV
