Headline: Almost one in two people receive an early retirement payment from an occupational pension plan
In 2018, almost 42% of women and 46% of men received a retirement benefit from an occupational pension plan for the first time before the legal age of retirement. The decision to withdraw a lump-sum from the 2nd pillar is often justified by the wish to independently manage and hold this money. These are the latest results from the new pensions statistics and the indicators on old-age provision from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
