Employment contracts of unlimited duration

Entry into the Pension Fund takes place when employment commences, at the earliest, however, on the 1 January following the attainment of the age of 17. The Pension Fund Regulations form an integral part of the employment contract and are given to each employee. The annual report is an other source of information on the Pension Fund Swiss Re.

The insured is covered against the risks of disability and death (risk insurance) until 31 December following or coinciding with their attainment of the age of 24. From 1 January following their attainment of the age of 24, their retirement benefits are also insured (full insurance.)

The leaving benefits from the previous pension scheme must be transferred to the new pension fund. The transferred-in leaving benefits will be used to make buy-ins to the Pension Plan. In the event of any surplus amounts, the insured can choose whether these are to be credited to the Capital Plan or to the ER account or whether the insured wants to use these to open a vested benefits account.
