Grey card anc claiming pension

Hi, I worked in Switzerland for 4 years in the 1990's and recently came across a grey social security type card that was given to me at the time. I am a UK citizen aged 50. I would like to claim back the pension benefits attached to this grey card and wonder how I might go about it and how do they work out how much you are owed? Any help useful. Links to any sites need to be in English as my German isnt good enough to negate any government type websites. Thanks in advance.

Re: Grey card anc claiming pension

You can't claim the payments as you live in the EU, but when you are 62 years old you can apply for a Swiss pension (I assume you are female), you can do this in English via your home national pensions office.

If you gave us your last Swiss home address, we could also give you the address of the pension office here. Then you could write and ask for a statement of your account. But as I say, this isn't necessary, as DHSS Newcastle or Dublin process your application.
