Re: Tax implications for 250k salary

I've always been confused by this. My employer lets me pay only 1.5% - which seems very low. Is there anywhere which explains the minimum contribution?
Are you younger than 25 years old? That would explain it as till that age only disability and death is insured.

To put it in perspective we pay about 240 CHF a month insurance each.
That age would also explain the rather low health insurance premium.

Standard pillar 2 contribution rates are https://www.bsv.admin.ch/bsv/en/home...und-zweck.html :
25-35 7%
35-44 10%
45-54 15%
55-65 18%
Usually paid half by employer and half by employee. And based on the so called coordinated income = income - ~25k.
