The certificate also contains information about your annual contributions to the pension fund or about how your family is covered. It therefore gives you a comprehensive overview of your retirement provision.

Guide to your pension fund certificate

Key points at a glance

You should always take note of the following details: 

  • Annual salary and insured salary: your annual salary is reported by your employer and corresponds to the OASI gross salary on your salary slip. The insured salary is calculated by deducting a specific amount (the coordination deduction) from your annual salary.
  • Performance of retirement assets: the retirement assets refer to the amount you have saved in your pension fund up to a specific date. The performance of your retirement assets tells you about changes in the last year.
  • Retirement capital/retirement pension: your predicted retirement capital and the corresponding annual retirement pension are projected with an interest rate. This is an estimate by experts of how much interest can be expected in future. It is therefore not the definitive pension, but a provisional calculation.
  • Benefits in the event of disability and death: the maximum annual benefit you can expect in the event of disability or death.
  • Potential purchase: you can purchase benefits to fill gaps for insufficient contribution years. Purchasing benefits for early retirement is possible only once the possibilities of purchasing contribution years have been exhausted.
