Re: tax / social security / pension obligations

Following on from what you say, I have a question: I am on the verge of accepting a good job in Zurich, which means a move from the UK.

I haven't built up a lot of pension contributions in the UK, so even tho' the Swiss company pension scheme is OK, I won't have built up enough contributions by the time I retire (10-15 yrs time) to avoid being below the poverty line.

Is there supplementary benefits scheme available in Switzerland that would help to maintain a basic level of dignity in retirement?

regards

LongJohn
