What happens to pensions when you leave for an EU country?

What happens to pillar 1 when you leave for another EU country? Is there some transfer of credits that goes to the social security of the new country or at retirement age the retiree will be claiming a pension from Switzerland directly?


What happens to pillar 2 when you leave for another EU country? Can you keep the pillar2 pension pot in Switzerland and at retirement age get a private pension from Switzerland ?

What happens to pillar3 when you leave for another EU country?

Re: What happens to pensions when you leave for an EU country?

Just checking, since your title speaks of "pensions" while your post seems to be about contributions to the three pillars, for potential future pensions.

Do you mean leaving Switzerland before or after starting to draw a pension (disability or old-age)?

Re: What happens to pensions when you leave for an EU country?

Everybody wants to withdraw their pensions... Well, I, for one, have no illusions about my capacity to invest that money wisely, so I'll be getting my AVS paid straight into my Swiss bank account starting on my 65th birthday, whilst living here in France. There is absolutely no problem, AFAIK.

I don't necessarily want to withdraw but I want to know the options, ie is it possible to leave pillar2 & pillar3 funds in Switzerland if someone relocates?
