Re: Praemienverbilligung? [health insurance subsidy/discount]

If you tell them you have savings, this reduces the chance of you obtaining the Verbilligung! I wouldn't tell them you have any savings, - this money should be well hidden and is for your future, a rainy day or emergencies. You might write on the form you have Fr. 200'000.-- savings, yet the following month utilize it to purchase a house. Then you don't have any savings.

I hope you aren't implying that OP should be dishonest about their savings. The SVA base their calculations on your tax papers, and being dishonest with those is probably fraud (getting money based on an incorrectly presented situation).
Definitely would strongly recommend against doing anything like this.

It would also be highly unfair to those who really need the subsidy.
