2nd Pillar: can I continue to contribute after leaving CH?

Moving back to UK after a few years in Switzerland.

My company has said for 2nd pillar you can take all in cash or put in swiss account till 60. Does anyone know of a method for putting 2nd pillar into a pension fund / account and continue contributing to the 2nd pillar after I have left switzerland ?

Thanks

Firstly it is not correct that you can take all cash. You can only take the amount over the obligatory fund. There is no real mechanism for maintaining a contributory 2nd pillar pension scheme whereas with the AHV you can. With the 2nd pillar it is put into a frozen account until you reach the minimum retirement age which is currently 60 but that might well increase...

Re: 2nd Pillar

You need to shop around for a good savings account/Sperrkonto or leave it with your present pension fund. Some banks offer very poor rates.

Talk to a financial advisor, maybe they can sell you something tailored to your needs. http://www.vermoegenszentrum.ch/Uber...ion---Personen
