Why can ALSA PK reduce the conversion rate on the mandatory retirement capital?
The conversion rate in accordance with the BVG Act is used to calculate the mandatory minimum benefits. A comparative calculation (shadow calculation) is always made to determine the retirement pension to be paid out at the time of retirement: Retirement pension according to regulatory conversion rates compared to retirement pension calculated according to LOB minimum regulations (LOB mandatory capital at age 64/65 multiplied by 6.80%). The higher pension is paid.
