ABP faces €1bn bill for unpaid labour disability benefits

first_imgABP’s headquarters in Heerlen, the Netherlands Dutch civil service scheme ABP could have to pay up to €1bn after discovering 16,000 participants and pensioners who were entitled to, but not receiving, additional labour disability benefits.The pension fund said it would pay the benefits in arrears, and also compensate disabled scheme members who had continued to pay contributions despite being exempt from doing so.Jos van Dijk, spokeswoman for the €431bn pension fund, said the discrepancy was found after comparing figures from social security insurer UWV with ABP’s own data.“The observation by the UWV that the number of disabled people was rising was not reflected by our figures,” she said. Although participants needed to apply for their pension themselves, ABP said everybody should receive the benefits to which they they are entitled.“That’s why we have sent all our participants a letter explaining how they still can sort out the matter correctly,” said Van Dijk.According to the spokeswoman, affected members missed out on €200 a month on average.As the right to the additional labour disability benefits has existed since 2007, the total amount involved could be significant, she indicated.“Although we need to have a second look at almost 5,000 cases, we have factored in a total amount of approximately €1bn,” Van Dijk said.ABP said that processing the applications could take up to six months, but people who needed money sooner could receive a deposit.The civil service scheme, which has approximately 3m participants and pensioners, said it would adjust its IT systems to improve its treatment of disability benefits.The case is the second time this year that ABP has had to address incorrect payments to members. In March it emerged that the pension scheme had incorrectly overpaid 700 pensioners by €3m due to a data error. last_img read more

COVID-19: ITTF holds emergency meeting

first_imgITTF Executive Committee holds an emergency meeting to discuss the effects of COVID-19 on the international table tennis event schedule. With the spread of COVID-19 across different parts of the world, the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) is prioritising the health and safety of all players, coaches, officials and fans. This has already led to decisions to suspend all ITTF events and activities until the end of April 2020, to postpone the Hana Bank 2020 World Team Table Tennis Championships and also the ITTF World Tour Platinum Japan Open. In view of the pandemic, the ITTF Executive Committee met on Monday 16th March, resulting in the following key outcomes: The ITTF Executive Committee reconfirms that all ITTF events and activities are suspended until the end of April 2020.On Sunday 29th March 2020, the ITTF Executive Committee will meet again to evaluate the situation and to consider if the suspension of all ITTF events and activities needs to be extended or not. The ITTF Executive Committee, together with Ryu Seungmin, Chairman of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the Hana Bank 2020 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Busan, Korea Republic, agrees that, given the increasing severity of the crisis worldwide, the provisional dates of 21-28 June 2020 may come too soon and therefore further back-up plans will be made to hold the event towards the end of the year, in the case it is needed to postpone further. The ITTF will consider potential options regarding the qualifying pathway for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, given that the qualifying events which had been scheduled for April 2020 will no longer take place as planned. Ideas will be discussed with the Continental Federations, the ITTF Athletes Commission and finally proposed to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for a joint decision. Options discussed include adding the Continental Events to the World Singles Qualification Event or another event closer to the Olympic Games, or using the World Ranking at a date to be decided.

Ronaldo barred from secret training

first_imgRelatedPosts Italy introduces compulsory virus testing for travellers from France Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Nigeria records new COVID-19 infections, more deaths as figures rise to 57,242 Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has been warned he is not above the rules after he was pictured training in a Madeira football stadium. The Portuguese star has been self-isolating with his family after leaving Turin one month ago as the coronavirus pandemic spread to Europe. But it seems Ronaldo has been flouting the rules regarding social distancing, after he was spotted training at the Estadio da Madeira in Funchal. The 35-year-old was pictured with a handful of other individuals during the session, which he used to practice his shooting drills. But Madeira secretary of health Pedro Ramos has told Ronaldo he must respect the rules during the pandemic. “Ronaldo has no special permission to train,” he said. “Cristiano Ronaldo has the right to train as long as he respects the rules like all citizens, there is no privilege. “All citizens can leave the house and do so, as long as they do not cause gatherings and maintain a safe distance during the exercise. “Therefore, Ronaldo did what we have seen. “There was no special authorisation because we are all the same, we are all facing the same pandemic. “The best player in the world must use his image to set an example, but Cristiano seems to me to have done just a few minutes of exercise and, therefore, there is no harm in the world. “I would not like it to be said that it is trivialisation, because we are all responsible. “All Madeirans are complying with the rules of the regional government. “And those who do not know that the forces of authority can exercise their power.” Ronaldo’s move comes just weeks after he teamed up with agent Jorge Mendes to help combat the fight against COVID-19. According to Spanish outlet AS, the Portuguese star will help foot the bill for supplies in the Sao Jao hospital in Porto. A number of Mendes’ clients, along with Ronaldo, will put their wealth to good use by chipping in for gowns and ventilators. The Sao Jao hospital, like many other around the globe, are struggling to deal with the vast amount of patients admitted due to the COVID-19.— Tags: CoronavirusCristiano RonaldoEstadio de MadeiraJuventusMadeira Football Stadiumlast_img read more

Claudio Ranieri: Unpredictable results have been good for the Premier League

first_img Chelsea remain three points above the relegation zone, while Manchester United lost to Norwich last weekend to drop out of the top four. Ranieri feels the change is a boost for English football and points out the Foxes may have become many fans’ second team. He said: “There is no easy match because if Leicester, Bournemouth, Watford and Crystal Palace are top of the form table, that means everyone wants to win. The other thing is big teams are thinking about other things, because it’s not normal that the big teams aren’t at the top. If there is one year strange, OK. “I think if we go through this fantastic moment – because now we have Liverpool, City and then Bournemouth, who are in great form, then Tottenham – maybe if we are still top not only Leicester fans are behind us, but a lot of English fans as well, because Leicester I think are a likeable team. “Maybe the people say: ‘If my team don’t win, I’m very happy if Leicester win’ and this is a good thing.” Leicester are two points clear of Arsenal, the only team to beat them this season, after last week’s 3-2 win at Everton. Robert Huth is available after suspension to face Liverpool and Ranieri must choose either Shinji Okazaki, who scored at Goodison Park, or Leonardo Ulloa to partner Jamie Vardy. He added: “I have good strikers. They’re different players – Ulloa and Okazaki. “But when they play the team is the same. Of course each player gives me the opportunity to make something different.” The last time Leicester travelled to Anfield was on January 1, 2015, with two second half strikes earning them a 2-2 draw. Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has welcomed the changing of the guard in the Barclays Premier League. The Foxes lead the table ahead of Boxing Day’s trip to Liverpool just 12 months after being bottom at Christmas. Leicester, Crystal Palace, Watford and Bournemouth top the form table with the Foxes not having lost since September and Watford just a point behind the top four. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
