Life Annuity

In cooperation with Swiss Life and VZ VermögensZentrum, we are offering the option of concluding life annuities with preferential conditions for Novartis associates. The life annuity is an insurance that guarantees a lifelong pension. Most life insurers offer such pensions. The conversion rate depends on various factors, such as age and refund. In principle, the older the insured person when the insurance is concluded, the higher the conversion rate. Experience shows that, at retirement age, the conversion rate is lower than in the pension fund. The annuity is only one of many possibilities for putting your savings to good use in old age. Make sure you check out the alternatives.
