Three questions for Laura

To be or not to be! Have you ever faced this question in your life?

It keeps coming up whenever I look at my calendar and think through in my head if I’ll make enough money.

Have you ever had pension role models?

No. I was always the only freelancer in my social circle and so always had to work out exciting topics like pillar 3a and accident insurance for myself somehow.

What pensions advice would you offer your younger self?

It’s completely normal that you don’t understand the jungle of insurance and the administration in Switzerland. But ask someone who does know what they’re talking about. Because your own ignorance will come back to haunt you and then it’s too late.
