Re: Withdrawing Swiss Pension after Leaving Switzerland

View Post
Hello All,

I left Switzerland to live in a non EU country at the end of 2011, at the time I transferred my pension funds into a pension account in UBS Bank.

I would now like to withdraw this money, is it possible to with draw it at a less tax rate by depositing this money into a bank of another Canton? and Which Canton would be better?

One can withdraw BVG money three years from latest submission if meeting one of the following:
1. Leave CH for NON EU country
2. Open his own business (self employee - not BVG)
3. Buy a property in CH.

Of course you can take the money otherwise, but you will have serious penalties. better keep the money until retirement age
