Hi
Can anyone help with an updated version to this question.
I (a Brit), 48 years young, left England in 1989, have been in Zurich resident since 1998 , accumulated 300K CHF in pension, nothing much in 3rd pillar,and want to emigrate permanently to the USA or SIngapore in mid 2010.

The questions are:
a) Can I take my pension with me?
b) in what format can I take?
c) how long do I have to wait to take it?
d) what format or urrency can I take it?
e) what kind of cost will there be?

NOTE that I want to keep this all clean with no strange stuff!
You can withdraw all your pension and after paying Swiss taxes (about 8%) convert it into any currency and transfer it to any Bank account anywhere in the world. There may be additional taxes in the destination country.
