Occupational Pension Supervisory Commission OPSC

Welcome to the website of the Occupational Pension Supervisory Commission (OPSC).
We provide information here on the occupational benefits system, what the OPSC does, and the persons and institutions it supervises.

As an independent supervisory authority, the OPSC is not subject to any form of outside direction from the Swiss parliament or Federal Council. It ensures the application of consistent supervisory practices within the occupational benefits system and oversees the nine regional authorities responsible for direct supervision. To this end, it has the power to issue directives providing detailed instructions. The OPSC is directly responsible for supervising investment foundations, the guarantee fund and the suppletory institution. It is also the accreditation authority for pension actuaries and asset managers working in this field.
