Report on Swiss Pension Reform ‘2020’ – Your impacts and challenges


The Swiss Federal Assembly formally adopted the Pension Reform ‘2020’ earlier this year. The two parliamentary chambers agreed that the ‘status quo’ is no longer an option and spoke out in favor of new legislation described as “the most important project of the legislative period”.

The Pension Reform ‘2020’ shall be submitted to a popular vote on September 24th, 2017. Depending on its outcome, the new legislation may have great impact on companies: Employees with lower salaries or working part time will have to pay higher contributions. Also the costs associated with pensions will rise and there might be transitional provisions to be paid.

However, as the pension plans differ from company to company, the implications of the pension reform thus do not affect every company in the same way. How can Mercer help you to determine the right strategy and measures for your specific company?
