Re: 2nd pillar contribution

View Post
My understanding is OP wants to buy into 2nd pillar now before losing the job as a tax benefit for the 2018 tax declaration.

Apologies for the confusion if I misunderstood

Actually, in 2nd Pillar, on top of mandatory contribution per month, you can do additional voluntarily contributions which are tax deductible (if you are below a benchmark amount in accumulated pension assets, as happens for new arrivals to CH who did not contribute earlier). Been there, done that.
yes. I have done that too in the past and wanted to do it again this year as I'm changing job and might end up abroad.
If I go abroad, am I still subject to a 3 year vesting to keep the tax benefits ? (it might depend on the destination i guess ?)
If yes, can I keep my 2nd pillar, and claim the money in 3 years at preferred terms ?
