Re: Relocating to the US, EU Citizen

The only difference I see is having the account in chf vs usd could open you up for exchange risk possibly subject to taxation. I don`t know that for sure but it would be a question.

Does this mean you are cashing your pension? If so you REALLY need to sort that out before you become a US tax resident, otherwise the US will tax it.

Friends who just relocated to the US (EU nationals) really had to push hard to make this happen because it kind of threw HR out of their normal processes (because you have to deregister to get the pension?). What ever it takes to have the pension taxed only in Switzerland. This you should push EY, your HR, and pension fund to make sure it happens.
