Re: Cashing out Swiss pension (Pillar 1) for Non-EU (Canada)

It depends on what the agreement says & local laws. It works fine going to the UK or France, but not Germany
NOT, from what I was told, unless you are cashing out under special circumstances that could apply in Switzerland too. The compensation office made it clear that it is not even worth applying if you are a citizen of EU or the other countries (US, Canada, NZ,...etc). Also, they said if one has double citizenship (example, Portugal and Brazil), the Portuguese one disqualifies the person even he intends to go live in Brazil.
