Re: Pensions - how much are they really worth

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.
In order to merge your pension fund in the UK into your Swiss fund your Swiss fund needs to be QROPS. Search this site for more info on QROPS pension funds in Switzerland.
