Her husband did when he worked and then when self-employed, but not for her.
If he contributed more than 2x CHF 472/year, he DID contribute for her.

And no, you don't pay more if married, but half does belong to your spouse.

I don't know when they made contributions mandatory for even unemployed people, but they are, my wife paid them until we got married.

There are some volumtary AHV, such as a Dritte Sauele/3rd pump. So could be accrued outside her employment. But that entailed being responsible for the plannimg for your future, likely ssving up instead of spending during the course of her life.

Yes, but even un-employed Swiss people have to make AHV contributions.

She won't get much if she hasn't contributed.

She will depend on the EL. I however cannot tell you how generous EL is in the Canton of Aargau, EL in the Cantons of Zürich, Schaffhausen and Bern is however fairly good

My Swiss mother-in-law gets more AHV than her husband - she has never worked outside of the house her entire life - just housewife and mother - a farm girl. How does that work? She never contributed to it. Her husband did when he worked and then when self-employed, but not for her. (Something to do with raising children apparently?) Oh, or maybe his was slightly higher to cover her? But then why does she get more than him?

But then again - O/H`s ex will receive more AHV than him, and she only worked (never more than 50%) later in life once the kids had grown up - whereas O/H has contributed his entire life. Apparently for her it is for having cared for/raised her Swiss children.

A part of HIS AHV automatically goes to the wife AND she most likely gets EL. While Mr Husband possibly refuses the EL System and so gets nothing from that side
