What do I need to know before retiring in Zurich?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Zurich, they said...

"LEARN GERMAN,and make sure that you can get a tax specialist who speaks your langauge if you mother tongue is not German, French or Italian," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Zurich, Switzerland.

"Before retiring in Zurich, it is important to research the cost of living and compare it to your expected income. As Switzerland is known for its high cost of living, it is important to take into account things like housing, transportation, food and medical costs. It is also important to have an understanding of the tax system in Switzerland and ensure that you are prepared to comply with it while living in the country. When retiring in Zurich, it is also important to learn about Switzerland's retirement laws and pension systems before settling down. It can be beneficial to also research the healthcare system and find out what type of coverage is available and whether you qualify for public or private health insurance. Finally, it is important to consider the quality of life Zurich has to offer and the amenities that you enjoy. Consider whether the city can provide activities and services to suit your lifestyle and needs. Learning some of the language, customs, culture and laws of the city is also recommended," commented one expat who made the move to Zurich, Switzerland.
