Leaving Switzerland - Pension funds

Hello,

Does anybody know if you are allowed to take out your pension funds for buying an apartment in another country (in this case sweden)? Or are you only allowed to take out the funds if you are buying in Switzerland?

Thank you in advance,

F.

We certainly used them for buying in the UK. Lots of form filling, but got there in the end - the funds come in after the purchase is completed. Certainly for us anyway.

But this feature has been, or soon will be, closed. Too many people were spending all their pension and then claiming social support.
