Contract termination && employee benefit institution

Hi,

insurance company asks for details to transfer my termination benefit as my employment contract has been ended.
If no details provided, it goes to Substitute Occupational Benefit Institution LOB (.. on Vesting in Pension Plans).

There is 5 digit figure that could be moved somewhere. Not clear to me where, as I am self employed at this point and plan to leave country in next half year.

https://web.aeis.ch/EN/pages/104/LOB...nefits%20plans
Could this money be withdrawn when leaving Suisse to Netherlands?

Perhaps someone could help out to understand basics of it.

Yes, if you are leaving Switzerland you can withdraw all the payments made to the pension. You will of course need to prove you're leaving, turned in your permit, resigned your apartment, got plane tickets to Bermuda, divorced the wife, sold the dog and the children etc etc. You might like to read this too.

That is about 1st pillar. Here some more information on pillar 1 pazout AHV refund when leaving Switzerland


For pillar 2 see here:
What happens to pensions when you leave for an EU country?
Leaving to live in the EU & cashing in a Swiss Pension


Finally pillar 3 is a piece of cake. As you already have full control over the 3b part and the 3a part can be paid out easily if you live abroad.

Thank you for the links, reading...

Additional info.
My employment ended in Switzerland in 2019. However, I plan to leave country around October / November 2020. For time being, where would I direct insurance&pension fund to forward that money?
