Supplementary benefits (EL/PC)


Supplementary benefits (EL/PC) are part of the Swiss social security system and, together with the AHV/AVS and/or the IV, provide basic financial security. If the minimum cost of living cannot be covered by pensions and/or income, there is a legal right to EL/PC. They are not welfare or social assistance benefits. As a rule, applications must be submitted to the cantonal AHV/AVS compensation office of the canton of residence.
