Enquiry to the 2nd Pillar Central Office

If you do not know the address of your benefit scheme in Switzerland, you may address a written enquiry to the 2nd Pillar Central Office. Please use the 2nd Pillar Central Office Form for the enquiry.

The form submitted by you will be compared by the 2nd Pillar Central Office with reports from the schemes. If a match is found you and the appropriate scheme will be informed. Possible claims must then be made by you directly to the occupational benefits or portable benefits scheme which has sole authority to decide on the entitlement and on a possible payment. The 2nd Pillar Central Office does not itself manage any credit balances, nor does it take decisions on claims to credit balances.

The enquiry must be sent to the following address:

2nd Pillar Central Office

LOB Guarantee Fund

Postfach 1023
3000 Berne 14

We will be happy to give you further information by phone (+41) 031 380 79 75 or send us an Email to: info@zentralstelle.ch
