An occupational pension fund is a pension fund which is directly connected to employment. Typically, contributions made to an occupational pension fund are co-financed by the employee and their employer.
In Switzerland, occupational pension funds fall under the pillar 2a category of retirement savings. Swiss employers are required to enroll employees who earn 21,150 Swiss francs per annum or more in an occupational pension fund. Contributions are divided evenly between employers and employees.
