Re: Thinking of retiring in Switzerland

Chelski, in addition to researching the tax issues, make sure you research health care. You need to determine if, given your age, you will be able to get the kind of insurance you feel appropriate to meet your health needs.

You will of course get basic insurance; this is mandatory, no one can be denied, regardless of age or health history. Supplemental insurance, however, can be denied based on many factors.

Many people are quite happy with only the basic coverage. Some find it woefully inadequate.

We have been here many years, but have decided that we will likely not stay after retirement. Health care is one of the primary reasons behind that decision.
