Leaving Switzerland

If I am leaving Switzerland do I get ALV (unemployment insurance) and AHV (Social Security) back?

No.
That short answer does not cover all situations. For one, it depends on the OPs destination: https://www.ch.ch/en/refund-ahv-contributions/

Re: Leaving Switzerland

Why should you get insurance back - insurance payments are made so that you are covered in case of the insured event happening, they are not a "savings account" which can be emptied when leaving CH - AHV can be paid afaik in certain situations (move to country outside of the EU/EFTA), but not if you move to an EU/EFTA country.

Q14 and 15 from the official source might be of interest, only available in German, French and Italian though.

He says he is British in his profile so I assumed he was moving within the EU in which case he can't get the AVS/AHV contributions back but will get a pension once he reaches retirement age.

The unemployment insurance contributions can definitely not be claimed back.

Re: Leaving Switzerland

Hi,

I have been following this forum for quite a while now, but I have just now registered. Unfortunately I would need to leave Switzerland(Zurich) permanently due to family reasons (EU national) and I would appreciate if someone could help me with the following queries:

- I have been sub-letting my flat for the past months and now that I have decided to leave permanently, the current sub-mieter would like to become the Nachmieter/Hauptmieter. Do I need to have the flat cleaned? (Assuming that wincasa accepts the change of tenants)

- What is going to happen with my deposit (I.e are they going to pay it back to me as soon as the transfer to the current tennant is over and ask him to deposit the relevant amount)?

- Regarding my visit to the stadthaus, if I were to leave permanently in the end of November, can I visit them now and get the abmeldebestaetigung (is it issued on the spot?) Or do I have to visit them closer to the date that I will leave?

- Finally, going to the stadthaus, it states in their webpage that 'Unterlagen um Ihre Steuerangelegenheiten zu regeln' are required. What exactly are these and how can I obtain them?

Apologies for the long text but my german is still very limited, so I would appreciate any input on the above.

Thank you in advance!

Depends on what Wincasa wants - as it is a change of tenants and thus a new contract with them starts I would say that you definitely will have to clean the place and stick up for the damages which were caused during your - rather than your subtenant's - lease with them. I see no reason why they should forfeit a part of your contract (surely it states that you have to have your flat cleaned at the end of your lease) just because your subtenant becomes their new tenant.

- What is going to happen with my deposit (I.e are they going to pay it back to me as soon as the transfer to the current tennant is over and ask him to deposit the relevant amount)?

Money can get paid back once all excessive damages which were caused during your lease with them - and which you are deemed liable for - are covered, and they can wait for up to a year after the end of your lease to tell the bank to release the deposit.

- Regarding my visit to the stadthaus, if I were to leave permanently in the end of November, can I visit them now and get the abmeldebestaetigung (is it issued on the spot?) Or do I have to visit them closer to the date that I will leave?

Call them and ask.
