AHV and IV supplementary benefits help in situations where pension claimants' income does not cover minimum living costs. At the end of 2016, 201,100 people were in receipt of an AHV supplementary benefit and 113,700 people were in receipt of an IV supplementary benefit. Expenditure financed by the Confederation (30%) and the cantons (70%) stood at CHF 4.9 billion. According to the Federal Social Insurance Office (FSIO), this figure is set to double by 2033.
