Re: Pensions - how much are they really worth

This all make much more sense now.
I think if I can find a way of saving the equivilant of about another 250,000 before I reach 62/65 then I believe I would have enough to live relatively normally when I retire. Presuming the job is still around until then
I suppose selling the house would be an option.
I am quite glad that I started looking at the actual numbers before it is too late. Up until now I had really just presumed that any swiss pension would be vastly superior to the one back home. The half a million number blinded me to the other realities in my pension statement.

You were correct - the disability payout is not so fantastic. Will talk with my insurance guy next week.
