Who receives what benefits?

What benefits does comPlan provide? What do insured members receive in the event of departure, retirement, disability or death? A brief and simple explanation of all of comPlan’s benefits.

Upon departure

Transfer to new pension fund

Transfer to vested benefits foundation

Payout in the event of self-employment

Payout in the event of emigration

Payout of small amounts

If you were only insured with comPlan for a short time your departure payment may be less than the sum of your annual employee contributions. In such a case of “insufficient assets” you may apply for your capital to be paid out in cash. Your spouse or civil partner will also need to co-sign the application with certification from a notary. The cash payment must be taxed as a capital withdrawal if it amounts to CHF 5,000 or more. You can view the current status of your pension capital and the annual contributions at comPlan Online.
