On the salary received in excess of € 137,800 (2024), employees can no longer accrue an ‘ordinary’ pension. That is why Pension Now (PPI) and the Zwitserleven Exclusive Pension have been expanded with the Zwitserleven Net Pension. It allows employees to voluntarily accrue a pension on the salary in excess of €137,800 (2024). A net pay surviving dependants' pension is also possible within the Zwitserleven Net Pension.
Please contact Zwitserleven for a Net Pension proposal.

The employee in control
Employees choose individually whether they want to accrue an extra net pay pension. The minimum contribution is 50% of the net pay pension graduated scale. Each year, the employee can decide to pay in up to 100% of the graduated scale. The investment options are the same as in the basic scheme. The employee can choose HorizonInvestment. If the employer allows it, the employee can also choose ProfileInvestment or FreeInvestment. Similarly, the employee can choose to purchase a net pay surviving dependants’ pension.
