Deuxieme Pilier
The pension (Deuxieme Pilier) is difficult to calculate perfectly because it can vary with age, occupation, and with the vagaries of insurance companies. We have used the mandatory maximum salary of CHF59700 X 8% divided 50/50 between employer and employee.
But a lot of employers base the 2me Pilier on the whole base salary and frequently the payment is 12% split 4% employee 8% Employer .
