Finances of AVS and AI supplementary benefits

The development of supplementary benefit expenditure is influenced by various factors. Demographic trends play a decisive role, particularly in the case of supplementary benefits for old-age insurance. Various elements of the calculation must also be regularly or irregularly adjusted to the rising cost of living in order to ensure a secure livelihood. However, recent cost trends have also been decisively influenced by legislative changes outside the supplementary benefits system. In addition to various revisions to the AHV and IV, the NFA and the reorganization of care financing in particular have had a lasting impact on EL expenditure.
