SPIN will inform you regularly about your forthcoming pension. The process leading up to your retirement will be as follows: 
A comparison of different providers can be worth your while
When you purchase your pension It is important to look for the product and provider that suits you best. The first thing to do therefore is to establish your personal financial situation and (income) requirements. Clearly, in choosing, legal provisions will also be considered. For instance, a pension must provide lifelong benefit payments and may not be paid out in a lump sum.

Choosing the most appropriate insurance company can be highly advantageous. And this advantage will be yours for as long as you live! The differences in the amount received in benefit payments can be substantial. This is because insurance companies apply different interest rates and charge different fees. Four factors determine the amount you receive in pension benefit:

Sometimes there are circumstances that can cause the value of the investments to decline; rising interest rates, for example. Precisely to limit the risk of a lower pension, you invest more in bonds than in shares just before the retirement date. Bonds ensure that the expected pension income is stabilized as much as possible. This is because investing in bonds has a so-called dampening mechanism: if interest rates rise, your bonds will lose value. But at a high interest rate you can use your capital to purchase more pension benefits from an insurer. The mechanism also works the other way around. Interest rate increases and decreases therefore have little effect on the amount of your final pension benefit.
This mechanism is explained in this video:
