I hear that in theory that was the case, but in practise after 2 years they would let you withdraw it. Could there be any truth to this?
Leaving to the EU, if the new country does not require compulsory insurance then it can be withdrawn. You need to fill in a form with the Swiss LOB guarantee fund, they will contact the country in question for a definitive answer in the individual case. The minimum period abroad is 90 days.

Forms for different countries available here http://www.verbindungsstelle.ch/xml_...on/d51/f61.cfm

Be aware that final taxation is based on the country you live in at the time of payout, the Swiss withholding tax is possibly irrelevant as it can be reclaimed & then used towards your new liability in your new place of residence. If you have no liability in your new country then the Swiss withholding tax can't be reclaimed.
