Social Security And Divorce

In the case of a divorce (or the annulment of a marriage) the Swiss Social Security Administration will in general apply the rule of equalization. This means that the income of both spouses, which was generated during the time of their marriage, will be added up and then divided in half. Those two (equal) amounts will then be credited with the insurance carrier. The same procedure will be applied if both spouses receive a pension or if one spouse receives survivor benefits.

This is a complex and far-reaching procedure because the one spouse with the higher income or entitlement will have to give up a certain percentage of the pension while the spouse with the lower income or pension will receive more than was originally scheduled.

If you are divorced we will assist you in making sure that the procedure of equal distribution has been done correctly regardless whether you through the rule of equalization had to give up a portion of your pension or gained a certain amount.
