COVID-19 - Life certificate/Swiss pension AHV
As of May 1st 2021, the Swiss Compensation Office (SCO) will require a life certificate legalized by a local authority. If it is not possible due to the health situation (e.g. difficulties in getting to the relevant authorities), life certificates may be attested by the insured themselves by signing the document (without the official stamp). In this case, we ask that a copy of a valid identity document (with photo) be attached to the certificate, as well as a witness confirmation .
The requested documents may be sent by postal or electronic mail to the competent Swiss representation or direcly to the SCO by email in PDF format.
