How to claim AHV after leaving switerland

Hello,

I am leaving Switzerland next month. I have been working since February in Zurich. How do I settle the AHV and Swiss Life component? Should I ask my Employer to look into this or do I have to run and get it done before leaving.


Thanks your inputs in advance.

Best Regards,
Harpreet

Wow!
i didn't know that you could take AHV with you when you leave..

You may be able to claim it when you retire though.

Possibly the OP is looking to have his AHV contributions refunded because he is leaving Switzerland. If so, Swiss Authorities Online (ch.ch) has this page that explains a possible refund for those eligible:

You have to leave the EU, not just Switzerland. (If i remember correctly)

When we left for the USA I simply rang them up . Ask your employer who they are paying to. Then they simply send me the account into the account I requested it to be in.

Re: How to claim AHV after leaving switerland

Just curious, if you have dual citizenship, EU and US, if you return back to the US, can the AHV contribution still be refunded?

Re: How to claim AHV after leaving switerland

Are you sure?

"Reimbursement of Contributions
17 Under what conditions can OASI contributions be reimbursed?

Citizens of non-contracting states who live abroad may apply for, and be granted, reimbursement of their OASI contributions without interest, after they have definitively left Switzerland. They must have paid contributions for at least one full year to be entitled to reimbursement."

https://www.ahv-iv.ch/p/10.03.e (page 48)

And my understanding is if an EU national moves to a non-EU country they could get their contributions reimbursed.

Did you even read what you linked?

'Information for Citizens of
States with which Switzerland
has not concluded a social
security agreement
(non-contracting
states)'

Yes, but I read that as non-contracting states.
