Re: help pension

Your pillar 2 should be readily accessible, but not your pillar 1, which is the state portion of your pension. You should be ale to transfer this to the UK or another country via the many bilateral agreements that exist between Switzerland and other countries.

If you have a reasonably sized UK pension and have been away from the UK for a certain qualifying period, there exist a number of opportunities regarding the unlocking of your fund. These are QROPS, and offer incredible benefits.
