Attestatie de vita, what does it mean?

Question: #Hilda, what is a attestatie de vita, or a “verklaring van in leven zijn”, and can you help me with it?
Answer: this is a document (for example) your pension authority in the Netherlands demands from you when you don’t live in the Netherlands. If you would live in the Netherlands, they could see in the system that you are still alive, and if you moved to another country to retire, they need an official statement that you didn’t pass away.
I can help you with this document, after you have shown me that you’re still alive, I will legalize the document for you and sent it to the pension authority.
