Today I signed my contract and we're making the move to Zurich in a couple of months!
Too many things going on at the moment and so I'm trying to get as much help as possible to resolve a few uncertainties. I'm not pregnant yet but we're getting married soon and I'm hoping that I will be at some point next year!
I've been reading through maternity policies and I have a few questions. Sorry if the answers are obvious, I'm trying to get some insight from someone who's been trough this already and can help me interpret the information I've seen. Here
it says that monthly earnings exceeding 7350 CHF will be capped on the 196 CHF per day. What is not clear to me is whether the 7350 is the net or gross monthly income. In section 8 of the same document it says that I should continue to pay OASI, DI and IC contributions on the benefit. And here
it says "The allowance is paid in the form of a daily allowance subject to AHV contributions
I'm trying to estimate what will be going in the bank account while I'm on maternity leave. Will it be 196*30 = 5850 per month? I don't know how much of this will be going to the above contributions, will I get taxed and how much will that be, the same as my pre-pregnancy tax?
Thank you very much in advance!!
