Thinking of retiring in Switzerland

Hello to everyone at EF.

I am thinking about the option of leaving the UK and retiring (early - 56 years old) to Switzerland with my partner.

The key question that I need to help make up my mind is the cost of living and the net income that I would have from my personal pension. I have read hundreds of posts in the forums on the cost of living but can find nothing so far on the tax and social security position for someone who is retired.

All of the government and other web sites that have tax calculators assume - not unnaturally - that you are working and require an input for salary and then provide automated deductions that don't seem to apply to my situation.

Also I can't seem to find anything on EF or elsewhere on the internet about whether we would need to pay any of the social security deductions. (I am fully paid-up for a UK state pension).

I'm very happy to provide any other details if that enables someone to assist me better.

Thanks in advance for your help.
