BV-A-1605

Occupational benefit provision (2nd pillar/LPP), which is jointly financed through employer and employee contributions, is a supplementary insurance scheme. The benefits it provides in the event of old age, invalidity or death supplement the benefits disbursed by the AVS/AI scheme. Occupational benefit provision includes all measures that are taken on a collective basis to ensure that the elderly, surviving dependants and the disabled in receipt of AVS/AI benefits are able to maintain in an appropriate manner the standard of living they enjoyed prior to the occurrence of the insured event of old-age, death or invalidity.
