Changes in Swiss Legislation 01.01.2017 / Adjustments of the Pension Fund Regulations

Dear Madam, dear Sir,

At the beginning of this year legislation changes were enacted in Switzerland, requiring adaptations of the Pension Fund Regulations, too.

The most important changes pertain to the Swiss divorce law. In particular, the splitting of pension benefits that were accrued during the marriage (up to the initiation of divorce proceedings) has been extended to pensions in payment, be it in case of disability or due to retirement.

The updated plan rules are available by using the following links:

Regulations of Pension Fund 1
Regulations of Pension Fund 2

Yours sincerely
