4 III SOCIAL SECURITY Background Information The Social Security Act was implemented in September 1957 and amended in April 1997 to further strengthen the system. It is now known as Social Security Act of Social security programmes provide for old age benefits and replacement income for workers in times of disability, death, sickness and maternity. Dependants pensions and funeral benefits are also available.

10 IV PRIVATE BENEFIT PLANS Background Information The Labour Code requires employers to grant certain minimum lump sum retirement benefits to employees (50% of 1 month s final salary for each year of service). Typical voluntary occupational retirement plans are final salary defined benefit plans, linked to the length of service, but generally not integrated with social security. Eligibility A regular employee who has been with the company for at least 6 months is eligible up to the age of 65. Contributions Usually non-contributory for employees. Retirement Retirement Age Normal retirement: Early retirement: Late retirement: 60M/F At least 50 years of age and 10 years of service 65M/F A common benefit basis is one that provides a lump sum of one month s basic salary for every year of service based on final basic salary. Vesting An occupational retirement plan will normally provide lump sum benefits on voluntary termination, according to a vesting scale applied to the accrued retirement benefits. This benefit can be used to offset the required termination indemnities. Disability 100% of retirement benefits accrued to date of disability. Benefit is paid as a lump sum. Permanent disability riders are often attached to the basic group life policy provided by employers. Death Typical life and accidental death and dismemberment coverage is one to two times annual salary. In addition, 100% of accrued old age benefits (same as disability benefit). Employee Reference Manual Swiss Life Network

11 Sickness and Work Injury Accidental death, dismemberment and permanent disability riders are often attached to the basic group life scheme provided by employers. Medical/Health Plans for daily allowance, surgery, in-hospital doctor s visits and maternity are offered. Supplementary major medical plans are available. Private medical plans are usually integrated with the social security Medicare programme. Instead of indemnity plans, some companies provide for employee membership in Health Maintenance Organisations (HMOs). The majority of these plans are non-contributory for the employee s benefits, but the employee pays 50% for dependants benefits. Other Termination Involuntary termination: Voluntary termination: Accrued old age benefits. According to vesting schedule with full vesting after 20 years. Taxation There is a 2% premium tax on all lines of insurance as well as a stamp duty (documentary stamp tax, DST) based on the value of the insurance policy. Contributions Employer contributions are tax-deductible, whereas employee contributions are not. Life benefits are taxable if the beneficiary does not have vested rights, but are not taxable if the beneficiary does. Health and disability benefits are not taxable. For company-sponsored employee benefit plans under a trust arrangement, death, disability and involuntary termination benefits are not taxable. Old age benefits are not taxable if the retirement programme is qualified under tax laws and the employee is at least 50 years old and with at least 10 years of service.
