Pension Fund


I am a contract worker here, working as external staff, and employed with a non-Swiss organisation. My company pays me a monthly salary after the appropriate Swiss deductions.
My query is regarding the deductions that go towards the pension fund. As I understand, the money accumulated in the pension fund over the years, is received by Swiss residents after they have retired. But what happens in case of expats who leave Switzerland after a couple of years stay?

Re: Pension Fund


i noticed this post still hasnt been answered so allow me.

you can apply to have your pension fund contributions refunded to you, including your employers contributions.

It is also the case with your AHV deductions, but if you apply to get them refunded, you must sign a document that states you will never work in CH again.
