What happens to Pillar 3a in the event of death?
In the event of death, the Pillar 3a capital is paid out in accordance with the order of beneficiaries set out in the law (Art. 2 BVV3). The pension assets are not a benefit under inheritance law and therefore do not form part of the estate.
The insured person may designate one or more beneficiaries from among those listed in letter b number 2 of the beneficiary regulations and specify their entitlements (with order and quota) in more detail. Please contact our customer service for this purpose.
