Back dating Swiss child benefit

Hi

When I moved to the Swiss border and became a 'frontalier' almost 1 year ago, I was claiming child benefit from the French prior to this as I was working in France.

I was then advised that if I chose to, I could claim from the Swiss or stay with the French system. To date, I have not received any money from the French since I moved and the information has been some what vague.

It now has finally been clarified that I must claim from the Swiss, regardless. So, now I have lost almost a years worth of payments from the Swiss because of poor information from officials on the French side. Now I will lodge my claim, but can I back date a claim?


Thanks for any help.....

In the Zurich Canton, you can backdate up to 5 years.
The form has a field to fill in the date for which you wish to claim from.
