AVS card

Hello

Do you know what an AVS card and an AVS number are? They were required by my employer for payroll purposes.

Thanks Cecco

Re: AVS card

It is a grey, postcard sized card with a name, number and boxes which each employer stamps. If it is your first job, your employer should get one from the state for you (at least thats what happens to everyone I know), then its yours to keep.

Thanks g_zuri, at least now I know what it is. I am already working in Switzerland but I haven't been given one yet. I'll wait for un update from the new employer.

Cheers

Re: AVS card

Cecco, are you sure that your first employer has registered you for AHV/AVS? It's mandatory to pay it. Have a look at your pay slip...
