Transparent participation model

Transparent and fair participation model

The Vita Classic retirement provision model is characterised by the direct and balanced participation of the insured in the investment income. This benefits them in the form of additional interest calculated according to a transparent mechanism.

The retirement provision model is explained in the brochure "Key facts at a glance" and and in the fact sheet “Vita Classic retirement provision model”.

Interest earned on retirement savings capital

The overall interest earned in the case of the Vita Classic retirement provision model consists of a base interest rate and a share in the maximum additional interest. The base interest corresponds to the legally determined minimum interest. If the coverage ratio amounts to at least 102% on the effective date at the end of November, additional interest is paid.

The share in the maximum additional interests is dependent on how long the company has been affiliated with the Vita Collective Foundation. Thanks to the high investment income in past years, customers of the Vita Collective Foundation have benefited from total interest earned that is higher than average.

Contribution to financing pension conversion losses

The pension regulations of the Vita Collective Foundation stipulate that the Foundation may levy contributions from insured persons and from the employer to finance the compensation of pension conversion losses (Art. 5 (5)).

Starting from January 1, 2024, a contribution rate of 0.01867 percent will be levied for the first time. This is calculated on the basis of the extrapolated mandatory retirement assets as of December 31, 2024 and applies to all active insured persons from the age of 45 and above. Per CHF 100,000 of retirement assets, this means a contribution of CHF 18.67 per year.

Employer and employee finance the contributions jointly – as provided for in the pension plan, for example 60/40 percent.
