Re: Withdrawing Swiss Pension after Leaving Switzerland

View Post
It's simple tax arbitrage. I used Liberty in canton Schwyz.

No-one gets screwed unless they read up properly or ask questions or get advice. It's not a devious plot by the Zurich authorities, just simple idiocy.

Who told your wife she couldn't do it? It's a vague accusation that means nothing right now
i accept what you say - it is just as likely to be simple idiocy. My wife's pension was with Zurich Insurance and they told her she couldnt. However we got advice and also moved the pension to Liberty in Schwyz. Now we can move the non-Mandatory in cash and the mandatory when we buy a house. The tax is then a lot less when it goes from Schwyz
