I recently moved to a European country from Switzerland and enjoying the freedom a lot
My question is about the 2nd pillar. I have been in contact with Axa Winthertur and the 2nd pillar central office. So far I haven’t found a solution to withdraw the funds. As it is a european country they don’t pay it out unless I have no social security/old age pension guarantee here, which I have.
I’m getting really frustrated as it is a considerable amount that I wouldn’t be able to touch in 20 years and I have no idea how it is invested right now (I have asked and didn’t receive a reply yet). I’m imagining it ending up being 0 CHF in 20 years time…
To purchase a primary residence: I have bought an apartment already and we are not planning any renovations (one reason for a withdraw)
Starting a business: I’m considering this but haven’t understood what are the requirements exactly. Would I need to show what the money would be invested in?
Anyone with experience or more knowledge about this? Appreciate any ideas.
