If you are a Swiss, EU or EEA national and residing in an EU or EEA member state:
- The application for an old-age pension has to be submitted to the social insurance agency of your country of residence.
- For an invalidity pension you have to apply at the social security office in your country of residence. If you are not subject to social security there you can send the application directly to the Swiss Compensation Office in Geneva.
Switzerland has concluded several bilateral social security agreements.
Your pension might be paid out in most of these countries but not to all (e.g.India). Please check the AHV/IV website or ask the
