Submitted by pmassetti on
Switzerland’s AHV/AVS 21 law, which was approved by parliament and then passed by public referendum in 2022, took effect January 1, 2024. Among other things, the law will increase the age for normal retirement (now called the “reference age”) for women under the social security AHV/AVS[1] retirement program as well as for pension plans that provide the mandatory BVG/LPP[2] retirement benefits.
