Every fall, we send you a proposal for the most cost-efficient basic insurance. If you accept the proposal, we’ll take care of the switch for you.

Would you like a convenient way to put money aside for the future and save on tax? You can with the pension saving service from AXA. If you have a supplementary health insurance policy with us, any reimbursements you receive can be paid straight into your AXA SmartFlex 3a pension plan.
To make use of the pension saving service you must:
Each time you are due a reimbursement you can decide how much to transfer to your Pillar 3a plan. You have to confirm how you want the amount allocated on each occasion. If you change your mind, you can cancel the process and correct the amount.
As a general rule, the money paid into a Pillar 3a restricted retirement plan can be paid out at the earliest five years before you reach the statutory OASI reference age (formerly: normal retirement age) of 65 for both men and women. In a similar way to what is possible in occupational benefits insurance, the pension capital paid into Pillar 3a can be withdrawn early. This is possible if you become self-employed, for example, or relocate abroad, or if buy your own home.
It is not possible to pay too much into your SmartFlex pension plan with AXA. This is because we check whether you have reached the maximum amount before every payment into your SmartFlex plan. If the additional payment is too high, we top up your AXA Pillar 3a plan until it reaches the maximum amount. We then either transfer the remainder to your private account or use it for future premiums – whichever you prefer.
Important: We cannot view payments into any Pillar 3 plans you may hold with other providers. If you split your payments between different Pillar 3a products, you yourself will need to ensure you do not exceed the maximum contribution.
Specific terms and conditions apply to newborns. You can find out about these in the article “Supplementary insurance for children”.
Supplementary health insurance products close many gaps in basic insurance, for example, with financial contributions toward glasses and contact lenses, gym memberships, or complementary medicine.
An additional advantage is that, whereas basic health insurance does not allow you a free choice of hospital or doctor, with supplementary hospital insurance you can tailor your hospital benefits to suit your needs.

There are three ways to save money on your basic health insurance cover:
The minimum term for supplementary insurance is one year. Each year, the contract is automatically renewed for a further year on the expiry date.
You can terminate the policy on December 31 of each year and switch to another health insurance provider in Switzerland. The notice period is three months, meaning your notice of termination must be received by no later than the last working day of September.
If the insurance premium changes, a one-month notice period applies. The notice of termination is considered to have been submitted on time if AXA receives it during standard office hours no later than 30 days after notification of the change.
You will find details of terminating your supplementary insurance on the web page “Terminating insurance contract?”
