AHV number

The company which I am going to work for next month, is asking me the AHV number. She says that I worked in Switzerland before so that I will have this AHV account already. It is a green card which my information and the number. But I have never seen it before and where can I find this number ? Should I contact to my previous employer to get the number ?

Thank you so much !

Re: AHV number

The following would all have had your AVS number:-

Your employer
Your commune
Your medical Insurer
The local AVS office for the district you were living in.

Re: AHV number

That's the number of the policy, not your AVS number. Contact the company, quote that number, and they should be able to find your AVS number.

I don't think it was ever a green card! The old cards were a kind of a grey colour and came with a plastic cover and the new cards are mainly white with a red/grey area on the tops.

In your case it might be worth giving your old employer a call, because in cases where they did not have current details for a person, they sent a copy of the card to the last known employer. Perhaps they still have it...

Good luck with that,

Jim.
