Claim LPP

Hi

I am leaving in Perth and I would like to know how to claim my LPP. I left Switzerland three years ago and I have no intention to come back.

I would like to buy a house here and this money would be handy.

Thanks for your help

Coco

Re: Claim LPP

I've no idea what LPP is. Maybe nobody else does either? Perhaps that's why this thread didn't get any attention. Telling us the canton you lived in might have some relevance to your question as well, as would be the amount of time you lived in Switzerland, what type of permit you had, and all the usual pieces of information which are relevant.

Or perhaps even the company pension scheme.

In answer to your question you need to have it paid out. I can only assume that you transfered this money to a bank or insurance company in a private account. You then need to close the account by showing the documents that prove that you have left Switzerland. In the German part of Switzerland this is called the abmeldeschein stamped by the exiting authority ie airport! If you do not have one then you should contact the bank or insurance company where your money is held and ask how you can release this.

It might be that you have to turn up in person to collect it

Re: Claim LPP

Hi Coco,

Which suburb will you be buying your house in? Is the Mandurah line coming along yet? I always thought it would be a good idea to buy a house in one of the new suburbs that will end up along the railway route to increase the house's value in the long run.

By the way, there are at least three Perthites on this forum

Re: Claim LPP

Thanks a lot for your help, I will contact l Union Bancaire Privee and see what they say. We plan to buy a townhouse around Wembley, Subiaco or West Leederville. I agree a house should be close by a train line, especially in Perth. Do you know who are the others people leaving in Perth? Be nice to meet them ...



See you coco
