Progressive benefits

What’s the key to job satisfaction for you?

Every day, we’re working on digital innovations for ING’s 8.5 million customers. We are a bank with  data-driven ambitions. Times are rapidly changing and we want to became even more agile during this digital journey. We are doing this together with our employees. So when it comes to your job and the perks, what makes you happy?

At ING, our mission is to ‘empower people to stay a step ahead in life and in business’ – not only our customers, but also our employees. In line with this, we offer a unique – and sometimes even surprising – benefits package.


An attractive salary

You get an attractive gross salary, depending on your job category and professional experience. The fixed salary consists of the following components (base for pension accrual)

  • Base salary (36 hour week)
  • Thirteenth-month
  • Holiday allowance: 8% of the monthly salary
  • Individual savings contribution (BIS): 3,5% of your personal monthly salary (no base for pension accrual)

The benefits budget

The Benefits Budget gives you control over part of your employment conditions. Each month you receive a Benefits Budget equal to roughly 20% of your monthly salary. This includes the 13th month bonus, holiday allowance and Individual Savings Contribution (BIS).

You can spend this budget each month via the My Benefits Budget-platform. If the employee makes no selection, the budget will be paid out with your monthly salary.

Via the Benefits Budget portal employees have options available:

  • Sell leave hours
  • Buy leave hours
  • Reserve budget (once only or monthly)
  • Bicycle for commuting to and from work (tax benefits)
  • Trade union membership (tax benefits)
  • International school fee (in specific Foreign Local cases)

Pension scheme

ING has their own ING CDC pension fund with a target retirement age of 67 years. The defined contribution scheme is based on the Dutch Pension Act and both ING and employees pay the pension contribution.

  • Total pension premium 2022 & 2023 = 30,5%
  • Employee own contribution 2022 & 2023 = 7,5%
  • If you earn more than € 128,810: with a monthly Individual Savings Allowance (TIS) you can save for extra (pension) entitlements yourself

Mobility card

You decide how you travel to the office. The Mobility Card offers many options: travel by bicycle, train, shared car, shared scooter or private car. In the app you arrange your transport and register your commute and business trips.

In addition to the Mobility Card you can also lease a bicycle with a tax benefit.
