Retirement planning

We are living longer and longer – in 1950 six workers financed one pensioner – in 2030 there will be only two. For this reason, it is important to pay attention to your private retirement arrangements and to organize them at an early stage. Private retirement contributions are the third pillar, which is based on the constitutional 3-pillar principle. Die distinguish in the third pillar:

Pillar 3a or restricted retirement plan

This form of retirement planning is promoted by the Swiss Confederation, where contributions to Pillar 3a are tax-deductible up to a maximum annual deduction of CHF 6’826 for salaried employees and CHF 30’384 for self-employed persons. Due to the tax privileges, the possibility of withdrawing any funds before retirement age is very limited. Restricted retirement plans are offered by insurance companies and bank foundations in various products.

Pillar 3b or unrestricted retirement plan

Pillar 3b retirement plans are not tied to specific terms and are not tax-privileged, so there are no maximum contributions. The unrestricted retirement plan is therefore mainly found at the bank as a bank savings account. Insurance companies also offer Pillar 3b and, beginning from certain time periods, this type of insurance also offers tax benefits.

Secure income

Securing your income is an important part of your private retirement arrangements, so that you are well protected in the event of a loss of earnings (disability) or to safeguard your surviving dependants (upon your death). The first and second pillars are usually not sufficient to maintain the accustomed standard of living. We therefore recommend that you have a specialist check to see if you have any income gaps.

Premium waiver: If you become disabled, your income will usually fall and the costs may be higher. in the event of your disability, the premium waiver will take over the contributions to your retirement plan and thus ensure your retirement arrangements. As a rule, the insurance solution offers the premium waiver together with retirement planning.

Disability pension: Depending on the level of income, the first and second pillars only cover a small part of earned income in the event of disability. Supplementing private retirement arrangements with a disability pension is worth considering, particularly in the event of illness, so that the gap can be closed as far as necessary in the event of loss of earnings.

Whole life insurance: The classic whole life insurance policy is often referred to as life insurance, as it provides financial security for the surviving dependants in the event of the death of the policyholder. Whether the purpose is to provide financial security for the family, the partner or the business partner, the beneficiaries receive monetary funds. It is possible to choose that the funds be constantly maintained at the same level throughout the duration of the contract or to decrease annually.

The planning of retirement is a complex subject with many providers. We would be happy to provide you with free advice.

Further offers

In addition to the obligatory and base insurance benefits, there are numerous other benefits that can ensure that you are completely covered. These include, for example, legal protection, travel or pet insurance.


Legal protection

As you probably know, litigation can quickly become very expensive. There are many areas in life where a legal dispute can arise; for example, with the lessor because of a contract was terminated, or with the employer due to wage payment issues, or even in the event of a traffic accident. We therefore recommend that you consider your personal risk of getting into a legal dispute. If this coverage is important to you, consider legal protection insurance. We distinguish between two main policies:

Private legal protection

Advice and representation of you as a private person in a dispute.

Motorist legal protection

Advice and representation for disputes in road traffic, not only as a driver.

There are striking differences in the products of insurance companies, both in terms of premium levels and the scope of coverage. We know them well and would be happy to assist you in choosing the right insurance policy.

Travel

Whether it’s a beach vacation, a city trip or backpacking through the wilderness – something unforeseen can always happen that makes you not enjoy the trip as planned. If you travel regularly, it can be worthwhile to review your travel insurance. The cost of an annual premium is relatively low compared to insurance for just a single trip. In order to avoid double coverage of the benefits from other insurance companies, there are modular offers which can be divided into the following main areas of coverage:

Personal assistance: If you have health problems during vacation, you will be supported professionally and financially by a return journey, rescue operations and other measures.

Cancellation costs: If you are unable to start or stop your journey due to sudden illness, this module covers any costs incurred.

Motor vehicle assistance: If you have any motor vehicle problems during your trip, you will be assisted with services such as towing, repairs and recovery.

These policies can be chosen very individually. We would be happy to assist you in making the right choice.

Pet

Is your dog or cat a beloved member of your family and you only want the best medical care for you pet? As you may know, the cost of treatment for a cat or dog can quickly become expensive. To ensure that your pet’s treatment is not made less successful due to financial obstacles, you can limit this risk by insuring the costs of treatment. Here you have the possibility to insure your animal easily and quickly online.
