Old-age and survivors' insurance

When they reach the age of retirement and if they meet the award conditions, persons who have been insured in Switzerland and in one or more contracting State, usually receive a partial pension from each country where they have been insured for at least one year.

Swiss and foreign benefits are granted independently from one another and each pension amount is calculated according to the insurance period accomplished in each country.
