Re: Freizuegigkeitskonto [vested benefit account]

Why do I get a groan? It was my pension fund who told me this. I can look it up in the rules, but why would I if I am groaned at in advance?! I only seek to share information that might be useful to others. I thought sharing such things is partly what this forum is about.

Personally, I only groan at people if their statements are derogatory, discriminatory etc. which luckily is very rare on this forum, which is part of the reason why most people appreciate this particular community so much (imho!).

PS. I am not even complaining, not so long ago in many western countries, people who moved jobs stood to lose a much greater part of their pension funds, due to the system being more inflexible than it is now. So in many ways, progress has been made, especially for expats.
