Re: Escal Swiss State pension simulation

Thanks again...

So, yep I'm seeing a pro-rated 'cap' on what I'll get out of Pillar 1.. but my % contributions out of my salary.. are not capped ?

That's how I'm reading this

In the case of salaried individuals, the employee and the employer each pay half of the total contribution, i.e. 4.35 % of the income on which OASI contributions must be paid (no upper limit).
The employer must transfer the total contribution directly to the OASI compensation office.


Individuals who reach retirement age are entitled to an old-age pension. In Switzerland,
retirement age for women is 64, while for men it is 65. The monthly old-age pension ranges
from a minimum of 1 185 Swiss francs to a maximum of 2 370 Swiss francs.

(I did see a way to change the spread of your salaries per year of paying in.. the button is there somewhere... but I'm starting to think the 'cap' is quite low (for an average expat salary anyway))
