Re: Future benefits from back-payments on pensions

Payment into the pension plan is generally tax deductible.
if you dissolve the pension plan too soon
(because of retirement, immigration, etc.);
then the taxman may interpret the extraordinary contribution as tax avoidance and reverse the deduction .

Tax avoidance is despicable whereas providing for retirement is encouraged.

Now arises the question: When is it "too soon"? The taxman decides that. More than 5 years is OK. Less than 1 year is vulnerable.
Voluntary buy backs has to remain at least exactly 3 years in the circuit of the second pillar in order that the tax authorities accept it.
