Re: Pensions - how much are they really worth

Of course bear in mind that you will be contributing for another 15 years. And by the way, do you have any UK personal pension plans?
My problem was I did not think I would reach this age - I think the little pension I have in the UK, I will try and merge into my swiss pension.

I will possibly increase my mortgage repayments so that when I am 65 there is a small reserve in my house which I can draw on - in case I live too long.

Most swiss people I speak to seem to do the opposite of this - they increase their mortgage and improve their homes. It is tax beneficial, but does not give you any emergency funds.
