Warning: False information about the Swiss pension system are circulating on the web!
The Swiss representation abroad officially denies the information circulating on certain websites about alleged beneficial pensions that Latin American citizens could obtain in Switzerland. This false publicity refers to a so-called clause in the Swiss Constitution that would allow foreigners to access to high pensions. Please ignore this erroneous information that has no truthfulness. We recommend that you are being cautious about sharing your personal data with third parties.
