Introduction to BVG

As its name suggests, compulsory BVG, like all compulsory schemes, is governed by law. Individual pension funds can do better than the law, but never worse. The maximum salary is CHF 84,600 per year.

It is important to insure your staff with a pension fund as soon as possible, to avoid being automatically affiliated to the supplementary fund, which is excessively costly.

Possible Covers

The pension fund covers a company’s employees in the event of long-term disability (1 or 2 years). In the event of death from illness, survivors (spouses, children, etc.) are entitled to benefits under certain conditions. All this can be optimized by adjusting benefits to your company’s profile.

Last but not least, the fund is a great way to look forward to a happy retirement. Don’t hesitate to compare with us the different returns and fees of the funds on the market.

Who is an Affiliate?

  • People from the age of 18 are covered against disability and death, but only save from the age of 25.
  • Income must exceed CHF 21,150.
  • The person must be gainfully employed in Switzerland.
  • These rules can be improved (e.g. savings from age 20) by provisions that go beyond the law.
