3rd Pillar and Investment

Hi,

Retirement plan in Switzerland is a bit different from other country.
It is divided into 3 pilars:

1st pilar: minimum vital
2nd Pilar: contribution half/half from employee and employer

At the age of your retirement, 1st and 2nd pilar correspond to 60% of your salary

To complete this lack, personal savings is advised to maintain your standard. Solutions that are offered to you 3 rd pilar or investment where you will be able to deduct your premium from your taxes.


For any further questions, please contact me

WARNING another financial advisor is out to get you!

BTW you deduct premiums against TAXABLE INCOME, which is way less than deducting the premium from your taxes!
