Switzerland Plans to Ensure Funding for 13th AVS Pension by 2026

  • The Swiss Federal Council aims to ensure funding for the 13th AVS pension from 2026
  • Two options are being considered to cover the additional costs: increasing employment contributions or a combination of employment contributions and VAT
  • The Federal Council wants to prevent the deterioration of AVS finances and reduce the federal contribution temporarily
  • The 13th pension will be paid annually to all beneficiaries from 2026
  • The cost of the 13th pension will be around 4.2 billion francs initially, increasing to 5 billion after five years
  • The Federal Council plans to reduce the federal contribution to AVS to 18.7% to avoid further burden on the federal budget
