Missing in action: AHV number

Hello,

I moved away from Switzerland a few years ago, but now my husband needs my AHV number for pension. Handily, I've misplaced all my Swiss paperwork. Does anyone know how I can go about finding out my number?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Missing in action: AHV number

You might have more luck in the Gemeinde / Commune office where you last lived, it will be on your file. They issue the AHV / AVS numbers.

Re: Missing in action: AHV number

When I was in this situation a few years ago I wasn't able to trace it through any of the federal channels, as I had also moved Kanton since the change from 11-digit to 13-digit numbers.

In the end it was the simplest thing in the world to pick up the phone and ask my HR department what it was.
