With the MoneyPark pension fund comparison you can, based on several important criteria, compare every pension account available in Switzerland and thus find out which pension funds best meet your needs. When looking for a suitable pension fund solution, it’s very helpful to have basic knowledge about pension planning in Switzerland. Pillar 3a/3b : restricted pension planning in Switzerland (3a interest and funds accounts) is called pillar 3a, unrestricted pension planning (private account, savings account etc.) is called pillar 3b. Retirement age: in Switzerland, the retirement age is 64 for women and 65 for men.
