Simplify the administration of your employee benefits
Staff turnover results in a large number of change reports for the employer. These administrative activities take up a lot of time which many SME owners would prefer to spend on their core business. There are some very attractive solutions available now to help you spend less time on administration and thus make cost savings.
Direct access, anytime, anywhere
The key to reducing administration is the simple processing of pension fund business transactions via online platforms. Online web applications offer you direct access wherever you are – at work or at home – to all the information needed for managing your employee benefits. Round-the-clock access whether from a laptop, tablet or smartphone. Notifications, changes and queries can be dealt with simply and efficiently in a couple of minutes. Company owners and HR managers have an up-to-date overview of insured employees’ contract, accounting and personnel data at all times. What's more, documents can be retrieved in seconds and the effect of future pension-related events (such as prepayment of pension fund assets to purchase residential property) can be illustrated immediately on the basis of simulated calculations.
Employees can access their personal data
Online platforms simplify employee benefits for more than just company owners and HR managers. The most innovative online platforms also enable employees to access their personal data and important documents at any time. And they too have the opportunity to calculate the effects of various scenarios. For example, employees can find out how much their pension capital will grow if they purchase additional benefits from their pension fund (with associated tax advantages) and how early retirement could affect the level of retirement benefits.
Intelligent online platform and personal service in one package
Online applications are intuitively designed and geared to customer needs. But if questions should still arise, a customer services advisor is available to answer them directly – by telephone, e-mail or chat. The user can decide how they would prefer to contact the employee benefits institution.
Online platforms like www.swisslife.ch/mylife (Link in German) are a highly attractive instrument, which can save both time and money and thereby enable company owners to devote their efforts to their core business.
