Where can I find my CSN (BSN) number?
We ask for the last four digits of your CSN (BSN number) during the activation process of the new pension portal. Your CSN (BSN) number can be found on the following documents, for example:
– your Dutch driver’s licence – your Dutch passport
– your Dutch identity card; – correspondence from the Dutch tax authorities; – it is frequently found on salary slips
Citizen Service Number stands for Citizen Service Number. It’s known as a “burgerservicenummer,” or BSN, in Dutch. The CSN shares 9 digits with the tax and social security numbers. A CSN (BSN) number is assigned to everyone who lives or works in the Netherlands, or has done so in the past.
More information about the CSN (BSN) number can be found on the Dutch tax authorities’ website.
Contact information for citizens (BSN)
The citizen service number (BSN) is a one-of-a-kind personal identification number assigned to everyone in the Personal Records Database (BRP). A BSN is assigned to everyone who registers with the BRP.
Using your BSN
Your citizen service number (BSN) is used by the government to process your personal information. In the Netherlands, you can use your BSN for any government service. You don’t have to give your information to each government agency; they can find it using your BSN.
The BSN in healthcare
If you want medical assistance, you can use your citizen service number (BSN) to identify yourself. The BSN is required for recognised care providers such as general practitioners and health insurance organisations.
The BSN in education
The BSN is also known as the personal identity number (PGN) or education number in education. The PGN and the BSN are the same number. In their records, schools must utilise the PGN.
The BSN is used for childcare, housing, and healthcare benefits.
Your and your child’s BSNs must be provided to childcare providers. The Tax and Customs Administration’s Benefits Office compares the number of childcare hours you submit to the hours recorded by the childcare organisation. Landlords and the housing benefit are in the same boat, as are healthcare insurers and the healthcare benefit.
Using the BSN to protect yourself from identity theft
The BSN’s major goal is to facilitate communication between government agencies and between individuals and the government. Non-government organisations, such as general practitioners and other healthcare providers, pharmacies, and health insurers, can only utilise the BSN if it is required by law. The BSN enables government agencies to transmit personal information without making mistakes. Each company must ensure that they are utilising their own BSN.
What should you do if you’ve misplaced your BSN?
Have you misplaced your BSN number? You can find your phone number on a variety of official papers, including:
The Dutch Tax Office may send you tax assessments or return letters.
Your passport or ID card from the Netherlands
Your driving licence in the Netherlands
If your BSN number is not shown on your identity paper, simply go to the Dutch municipality where you are registered and request it.
