Retirement with EU permit

So, I don't want to go into too much detail here. My parents are planning to move to europe to help and spend time with my daughter. We live in Schaffhausen, so border shopping is how they will keep their costs under control. They are bringing with them a sizeable amount of money after they sold their home in Canada.

I am here on B permit using my EU passport. Since they have their own EU passport, it would probably make sense they come here on that, rather then I use family reunification to accomplish this. I will be sending them down to town hall to ask about this stuff, but perhaps anyone on here could tell me what kind of permit you get if you qualify money wise and EU passport wise?

They have a plan to eventually buy property here also, which will reduce their monthly expenses also.

Re: Retirement with EU permit

While waiting for answers from those who know more about it than I do here are
The Official Site regarding coming to CH
Similar official stuff in English.
Maybe something there will help.
I haven't tried to find the exact part you need as there are quite a few possible points mentioned which could interest you now or later.

Re: Retirement with EU permit

Swiss Authorities Online (ch.ch) has a page on the topic called "Foreign nationals without gainful employment":

"EU/EFTA nationals Persons who are not gainfully employed (e.g. retirees and students) may remain in Switzerland if the following conditions are met:
  • They have adequate financial resources to cover the cost of living in Switzerland so as to ensure that they will not become dependent on welfare benefits, and
  • They have a health insurance policy that also includes accident coverage."

B permit for first 5 years, if they can afford to look after themselves no problem.
Depending on canton, however they will have to show assets of 300k or more, I.e enough to live on for 5 years.
