Note: Consequences of continued employment beyond early retirement age:

By making purchases for early retirement, you confirm your intention to effectively withdraw from working life at the defined early retirement age. We will consider this information accordingly.

Funds raised in excess of this amount go to the pension fund.

Questions on purchasing benefits

We ask that you provide the following information so that the maximum purchase sum can be calculated in line with the legal requirements. Further information and explanations on these matters can be found in the information sheet ‘Purchase of pension fund benefits’.

Have you made advance withdrawals to purchase residential property and not yet paid them back?

Note: Voluntary purchase may only be made after home-ownership advance withdrawals have been repaid.

Have you not yet fully repaid any transfer due to divorce?
Do you have any savings in vested benefits policies and/or vested benefits accounts?
Are you or have you ever been self-employed?

In the case of an existing or former self-employed status, we need more details about any savings in Pillar 3a.

Have you moved from abroad in the last five years? For persons who have moved from abroad since 1 January 2006 and are insured for the first time in a Swiss employee benefit institution (Pillar 2), the annual purchase sum is limited to 20% of the insured annual salary in the first five years since joining a Swiss pension fund.

Tax-related issues of a purchase

Capital payment prohibition

There is a three-year capital payment prohibition on making a purchase. For the following three years, benefits may not be drawn in the form of a lump sum. This refers to retirement benefits, advance withdrawals for home ownership and cash payments upon termination of employment.

Otherwise, the tax authorities may consider a capital withdrawal as a circumvention and initiate a supplementary tax procedure because they can consider all 2nd pillar benefit arrangements of a person as a whole.

Tax deductibility

For the purchase sum to be relevant in terms of tax in the current year, it must reach us on or before 31 December of that year. When deciding whether or not a purchase can be deducted from taxes, the tax authorities consider all benefit arrangements and assets of an insured person. We calculate the purchase sum on the basis of the information in our possession and cannot guarantee that this information – in particular affiliation with other pension institutions – is complete and that the purchase will be permitted for tax deduction.

Responsibility

In each case the insured person bears the tax-related consequences associated with purchases or capital withdrawals after purchases have been made. The Foundation accepts no responsibility in this regard.

It is strongly recommended that prior clarification be obtained from the relevant tax authority.

Good to know

Procedure

To determine your maximum purchase sum, the application must be submitted by the beginning of November. Based on this, we calculate the maximum purchase sum and inform you of the amount. For a purchase sum to become tax-effective in the current year, it must reach us by 31 December of the year at the latest. Purchase payments which exceed the maximum purchase sum will be refunded without interest.
