Pillar 2: Credit Suisse will introduce a quarterly fee. Options?

I got a letter from Credit Suisse, where I have my very modest Pillar 2 "savings". It is 9 CHF per quarter (36 per year). It isn't huge but my savings there are so small (I worked only one year in Switzerland) that I really don't want this drag.

I left back in 2014 and don't quite remember what I can do with Pillar 2 (I'm within the EU, so I think I can't cash it out entirely). Does anyone know other banks who could hold the assets free of charge, or any other options?

Thanks in advance!

If all fails there is always the Stiftung Auffangeinrichtung BVG (Chaeis).
https://web.aeis.ch/EN/pages/96/FZK%...its%20accounts
They must take anyone, regardless of nationality and domicile.
Current interest rate with them is 0.1%

Better interest rates offers WIR Bank, Banco Stato Ticino, Clientis Caisse d'Epargne Courtelary, and Bezirks-Sparkasse Dielsdorf.

As BaselBT left the country and doesn't sound as if they want to come back, can't they cash it in?

It’s based on compulsory insurance requirement or not rather than country of residents

I don't remember this distinction, can you clarify?

I will probably move it to WIR bank or similar, although trying to improve on the paltry interest rates I chose something in Credit Suisse that was partly (I think 45%) invested in an index, and indeed the amount rises and falls (but on average it has risen, and more than 0.2% per year...). I'm not sure if that will create difficulties transferring it over.

Now, let a Brit explain that to me: If I as a Swiss leave Switzerland for good but move to an EU country, I won't get the money either?
If so, I honestly didn't know that.

Re: Pillar 2: Credit Suisse will introduce a quarterly fee. Options?

You can have the "überobligatorische" part paid out when you leave.

As far as I understand it you cannot take it if you get another job in an EU country. Which in return would mean that it could be paid out if you do not work in that country?

Wasn´t there a thread from someone who did move to an EU country and had it all paid out?

Depending on insurance requirement, if not working or self employed then probably 100% withdrawal as I did 4.5 year’s ago

Yes my thread. Until the uk workplace pension the uk did not require insurance, sure some other countries don’t now

Okay, thanks.
I didn't know that, I thought "leaving home for good" was that - didn't know sticking around Europe makes a difference to us.

It's just a matter of leaving CH to live in the EU under free movement, same rules apply to CH/EU passport holders.

Permanent move is an intention at the time, nothing to stop you returning 2 years later.

You get a permanent job & then get sacked after 3 months, 1 year, 5 years ...... Things is life is full of surprises.

WIR bank can only open the account if I go to a branch, and further only accept people that live in a neighboring country (e.g. Germany). Doesn't work for me :/

Next!
