Re: Taking money out of Switzerland

If you are a non-EU person, you may take your 2nd and 3er pillar money out of the country. Be aware that as this is money you have been accumulating on a tax free basis, you will be charged a "quellensteuer" on the money you withdraw.

If you are Swiss moving to the US, I am not sure if you can withdraw money accumulated under either of the aforementioned savings plans.

If you are an EU person, you may withdraw the money provided you move before new bilateral laws go into effect next year.

You may find the actual info (albeit in german) here:

Very useful. So the Pillar 1 (Is this called State Pension) is not reimbursable or given back to a US citizen?
