UBS Vested Benefits Foundation – a simple and secure way to reduce your administrative workload

The UBS Vested Benefits Foundation reduces the burden on pension fund administrators when members join or leave pension funds through its range of useful services.

Our offering at a glance

When members leave, pension funds can simply and easily set up an account with our vested benefits foundation and transfer the vested benefits to it. Benefits can then be credited just as easily by the UBS Vested Benefits Foundation to the new pension fund. These transfers can also be done online if preferred, using UBS FZweb.

Opening a vested benefits account

A vested benefits account should be opened in two cases: When an employee's employment relationship comes to an end, but their vested benefits cannot be transferred to a new pension fund immediately or in full. Or when an employee’s salary falls below the minimum level at which insurance is required

Arranging an advisory consultation

Enter all the data required to open an account onto an online account opening form UBS FZweb (only for pension funds). Electronic data transfer accelerates account opening; you can print out and archive a copy of the form.

The information on the form is encrypted and transferred to the UBS Vested Benefits Foundation. Once the data is received, the Foundation checks and processes it.

With UBS FZdirect, you can transfer vested benefits to a vested benefits account with a minimum of administrative effort, and thus at reduced cost. You only have to enter the member's data once – we process the information that you have already entered for the exit calculation and transferred to us as an encrypted file. We’ll provide you with the software for this free of charge.

    

Transfer vested benefits

You can transfer the vested benefits to the collective account of the UBS Vested Benefits Foundation via UBS e-banking or using a payment slip. The UBS Vested Benefits Foundation then credits the amount to the member's individual vested benefits account and sends a confirmation to you and the member.
