        That’s what they call the “third pillar” of their three pillar system (first is state pension and old age/survivors insurance, essentially just like our Social Security, second is an employer-sponsored pension plan that is compulsory for most Swiss workers, and third is a voluntary, supplemental pension that’s supported by some tax.   Most pension funds charge a fee to process the withdrawal, and this fee can be as high as several hundred francs. For this reason, making a single, large withdrawal can be preferable to making multiple withdrawals (every 5 years, for example). Assets which you withdraw from your pension fund are subject to taxation.

      A recognised auditing body controls the management, the accounts and investments of the pension funds each year. Periodic controls are also undertaken by a pension scheme expert. Cantonal surveillance authorities check that pension funds comply with legal provisions and regulations. q The minimum interest rate allowed by Swiss law in the simulation model is assumed to follow the arithmetic average of the previous years monthly observed continuous year zero coupon rate. Liabilities are valued at book value, according to current market practice of most Swiss pension funds.
