Pension certificate 2022 and information about the Pension Fund's annual financial statements
Pension certificates 2022 and information about the Pension Fund sent to all insured persons
The personal pension certificate was sent to the insured persons by post after the 2022 salary and wage round. This opportunity was also used to inform the insured persons about important matters relating to the Lonza Pension Fund.
Interest on retirement savings
PKL's Board of Trustees decided to pay 1.75% interest (BVG interest 1.0%) on the retirement savings of the active insured persons for 2021. The total retirement savings, i.e. the mandatory (BVG) assets as well as the extra-mandatory assets, earned interest at 1.75%.
For the current year, interest of 1.0% will be paid initially (equals the BVG interest rate for mandatory retirement savings for 2022). The Board of Trustees will decide about the final interest rate for 2022 as soon as the investment performance for 2022 has been calculated.

Unmarried insured persons can register a civil partnership with PKL. You can find the details in Art. 26 and Art. 28 of the current version of the pension fund regulations. If this is required, the insured person must inform PKL about the cohabiting partner during their lifetime. You can find the applicable form under Regulations & forms.
