Finances of the invalidity insurance (IV)

Key facts and figures:

  • In 2014 IV expenditure stood at CHF 9.25 billion; revenue totalled CHF 9.94 million (incl. CHF 1.12 billion in additional funding from VAT revenue).
  • The last three years the IV has reduced its debts to the OASI Fund by CHF 2.2 billion. 
  • Given that the impact of the fall in the number of new IV pension recipients on IV expenditure is set to become more pronounced over time, the IV scheme will remain in surplus even after the period of additional funding ends.

Consequently, the IV scheme should have settled all its debts by 2030 at the latest.
