Most Dutch pensioners will see benefit cuts
Most Dutch pension funds will be hard pressed to avoid cutting benefits from 2013.
Leading financial broadsheet on Wednesday published a report based on its own research into the coverage ratio of several dozen pension funds.
The paper writes that 17 of the major funds face a 5.9-percent shortfall on average. The five biggest pension funds are reportedly considering a 7.9 percent cut in benefits.
