A project to bring AOW people into contact with each other abroad.
In collaboration with Milvum, we are working on the project to build an app with which state pensioners can get in touch with each other abroad. They can indicate that they want contact via email or telephone and then also come into contact outside the app.
When they visited people abroad, the Enforcement team was regularly asked whether there were other people in the neighborhood that they were visiting. They wanted to get in touch with these people. This gave rise to the idea of creating an app with which this contact can be made easily. They enter their data and then get to see some of the information from the other, after which they can send each other a contact request. They can choose to share their phone number, email address or both and then contact each other outside the app.
Together with Milvum we have made a prototype of the app, on which we are still making a number of adjustments. In June we will test the prototype in the United States and in July in Hungary.
Unfortunately, the prototype tests were not positive enough to continue with this.
