Dutch team members get the customary month of vacation money (Vakantiegeld) in the month of May, as defined by the government. Note that Vakantiegeld is built into offers as well as our Compensation Calculator.
There is no additional medical coverage scheme through GitLab.
Note that in the Netherlands every citizen is obliged to have at least a basic health insurance package (basisverzekering) with a health insurance company. If you do not have health insurance, you can be fined by the Sociale Verzekeringsbank.
GitLab does not plan on adding additional medical cover at this time due to the governmental cover.
State pension (AOW) is standard and will be paid out at retirement age. Starting January 1, 2021, GitLab will offer a private pension plan through Brand New Day for all team members over the age of 21 employed via a GitLab BV Netherlands employment contract. The pension plan will be a Defined Contribution Agreement with a flat rate of 3.00% of the pension base. The GitLab team member will contribute 2%, with the employer (GitLab) contributing 1%. The pension base equals the pensionable salary less the state pension offset. For additional training, Brand New Day has provided video explanations on how the pension plan works.
Pension Plan Summary:
Voluntary Pension Plan Summary:
Individual value transfer: A team member can have the pension value accrued at a former employer transferred to Brand New Day. An individual value transfer must be requested from Brand New Day within six months of joining the scheme. Once this is complete, the years of service at any former employers count towards Death Benefits.
Investment Profile: Team members choose their own investment profile: neutral, defensive or offensive or their own mix of equities and bonds, within the limits set by Brand New Day. Furthermore, you can choose to put all the contributions in a savings fund.
GitLab does not offer life insurance in the Netherlands at this time. Team members are automatically covered up to 70% of their last wage in case of disability by the governmental Employee Insurance Agency.
