Supplementary benefits to AHV and IV

Supplementary benefits to AHV and IV

When AHV or IV pensions do not cover the costs of living, supplementary benefits can be claimed under certain conditions. The person’s legal place of residence must be in Switzerland, the person must actually be living here and be the recipient of an AHV/IV pension, an IV helplessness allowance or an IV daily allowance for at least 6 months. The supplements are calculated according to the recipient’s needs by comparing approved expenses and income (including assets and any income from part-time work).
