SALARY DATA Your salary forms the basis for the calculation of all benefits and contributions.

Reported annual salary
The reported annual salary corresponds to your pensionable salary (gross salary) and is consistent with the information shown in your salary statement. If you start a position during the year, it is extrapolated to show the amount for a full year (monthly salary × 12 or × 13). Please report any errors to your employer immediately.

Insured salary 1
The insured salary 1 is generally the basis for calculating your retirement credits.

Insured salary 2
The insured salary 2 is generally the basis for calculating your risk benefits (disability and death).

Under the regulations, a coordination amount can be deducted from insured salaries 1 and 2. This is designed to coordinate the cover with the first pillar (Swiss old age and survivors’ insurance (OASI)). The exact calculation method is described in your pension plan.

BENEFITS IN OLD AGE This section lists the projected benefits (annual retirement pension or one-off capital payment) that you will receive when you reach the normal retirement age.

Please note: This is a projected figure that is subject to a certain degree of uncertainty in the longer term. Particularly in cases involving younger policyholders, the projected figure may differ considerably from the figure that actually applies at the time of retirement. The exact old-age benefits, also taking any buy-ins into account, cannot be calculated with definitive effect until you actually reach retirement age.

Pension benefits *

CHF

Annual retirement pension The annual retirement pension refers to your income from the second pillar after normal retirement. This benefit is paid out on a lifelong basis. The amount corresponds to your retirement capital, multiplied by the conversion rate. The conversion rate is the percentage used to calculate your annual retirement pension. It is set by the Board of Trustees and you can find the current conversion rate in the Appendix to the Pension Fund Regulations.

Example: Based on retirement capital of CHF 100,000 and a conversion rate of 6.0%, you will receive an annual retirement pension of CHF 6,000.

Annual old-age pension as per 31.05.2030

27'112

Retirement capital The one-off retirement capital is calculated based on the current retirement savings available and the projected retirement credits including interest, for the period leading up to your normal retirement (projection). The interest rate is defined by the Board of Trustees.

The retirement capital forms the basis for calculating your annual retirement pension.

You can opt to receive a one-off lump-sum amount as opposed to an annual retirement pension by submitting an application at any time up until your first pension is paid out. Once your first pension has been paid out, this option is no longer available.

Annual retired person’s child pension If your children are under 18 years old or are completing initial post-secondary education or training (up to the age of 25) when you retire, you are entitled to a retired person’s child pension. You will receive a payment corresponding to 20% of your retirement pension for each child.

5'422

OLD-AGE BENEFITS IN THE EVENT OF EARLY RETIREMENT The calculation is based on the same formula as the annual retirement pension or the one-off retirement capital. A reduced conversion date, however, is applied to reflect the shorter term. You can find this conversion rate in the Appendix to your Pension Fund Regulations.

In case of disability

CHF

Annual disability pension due to illness The annual disability pension is the maximum pension paid out in the event of occupational disability due to illness. A partial disability pension is only paid out to individuals with a level of disability of 40% or more based on the invalidity insurance system.

If your employer has taken out a daily sickness benefits insurance policy for its employees, a waiting period of 24 months applies before a disability pension is paid out. The amount of your disability pension is defined in the pension plan. You can find detailed information on your entitlements in sections 24 et seqq. of the Pension Fund Regulations.

Annual disabled person’s child pension due to illness The disabled person’s child pension is linked to the disability pension and is subject to the same terms and conditions. It is paid out for each child aged under 18 or completing initial post-secondary education or training (up to the age of 25). The amount is defined in your pension plan and set out here in your insurance certificate.

Exemption from premiums in the event of illness or an accident Once the defined waiting period has passed, you are exempted from the obligation to pay premiums. Exemption from premiums is linked directly to occupational disability and comes into force both in the event of illness and if you are involved in an accident.

Waiver of premium in case of illness or accident, waiting period 3 months

25'430

BENEFITS IN THE EVENT OF DEATH If you die due to illness, your spouse or partner is entitled to a lifelong partner’s pension. Your children are entitled to an orphan’s pension.

Registered partnerships or the nomination of a partner as a beneficiary must be reported in advance. Use the “De facto partnership declaration/support contract” (Konkubinatserklärung/Unterstützungsvertrag) form for this purpose.

In case of death

CHF

Annual partner’s pension before retirement The amount of the annual partner’s pension is defined in your pension plan and set out here in your insurance certificate. More detailed information on the entitlement is set out in sections 27.2 and 28.3 of the Pension Fund Regulations.

You can also opt to receive a one-off lump-sum amount (lump-sum death benefit) by submitting an application at any time up until your first partner’s pension is paid out. Once the first partner’s pension has been paid out, this option is no longer available.

Lump-sum death benefit (in the event that there is no entitlement to a partner’s pension) The lump-sum death benefit is a one-off lump-sum payment made to your partner or your legal heirs and generally corresponds to the amount of your retirement savings that is available at the time of your death.

You can find more detailed information in your pension plan and in the Pension Fund Regulations (section 30).

An additional lump-sum death benefit can also be defined in your pension plan. Ask your employer for more information.

Withdrawal for financing residential property

Pledged pension benefits Here, you can see whether or not you have already pledged your pension benefits, and in what amount, to finance your own home (owner-occupied residential property). These benefits act as an additional form of collateral for your lender (e.g. the bank you have taken out your mortgage with).

Maximum possible early withdrawal In order to finance your own home, you can arrange for the maximum amount shown here to be paid out. It will then be deducted from your retirement savings. You must withdraw at least CHF 20,000. You can make an early withdrawal every five years.

You can withdraw an amount corresponding to your entire retirement savings up until you turn 50. Once you turn 50, you can withdraw half of your current retirement savings or the amount of the retirement savings you had at the age of 50, whichever is higher.

TAX-DEDUCTIBLE PENSION DEPOSIT Missing contribution years or salary increases can produce contribution gaps in your pension fund. You can use voluntary buy-ins to close these gaps. This allows you to benefit from tax savings and higher benefits after you retire.

If you are interested in voluntary buy-ins, please get in touch with us. We will be happy to provide you with information on what your options are in your specific case.

Computation without engagement
Assets on vested benefits accounts and vested benefits policies are to be deducted from the maximum possible purchase amount. Under certain conditions any possible pillar 3a credits may also be partly credited against the purchasing amount. Please note that all benefits resulting from a voluntary purchase are blocked for the next 3 years as far as cash payment is concerned. In other words, no cash payment (incl. interest) will be possible during this period, be it in case of retirement, freelance work, departure from Switzerland or for financing residential property.
Your purchase will only be processed after you have given in the form 'Application for a purchase into the Pension Fund'.
