Re: Taking money out of Switzerland to USA 2010

View Post
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!
2nd pillar:
Yes, once you have left Switzerland permanently and if your last voluntary buy back has been at least 3 years in the circuit of the 2nd pillar.
3a pillar:
There are no restrictions.
b)Payment usually is done in Swiss francs....some foundations give you the choice as well transfer the portfolio if you have done an investment before....
1) Have a look at point a)
2) Cash payment process can be done very quickly, once you have all needed documents....
d) Have a look at point b)
d) Ask the foundation....for PensFree
