Re: Cashing in Swiss pension and returning to the UK

Hmm update again. Turns out that now I am about to ask for it, my new pension company is unsure if they can release my second pillar to buy a house in the UK. They are looking into it. They say I can only access my second pillar WHILST I am working in CH. So therefore it's hard to justify that my primary residence would be in the UK. I'm now looking at trying to transfer my pension back to Zurich who still assure me that they can release it.

So just a word of warning. Be sure to clear well in advance with your pension company that they'll release funds AFTER you've left the country to buy a primary residence outside CH. If not then find a pension company who will.

Will continue to update peeps on my battle.
