AHV / AVS contributions for your pension should be paid, even if you have no income, otherwise you will not get so much Swiss pension when you retire.

You will be paying into a European wide system. I last paid into the UK fund in 1977, and today I earn a UK pension. Of course you will get a Swiss pension, 2 years is one 20th or 5% of a Swiss pension. At today's rate that is about CHF 115 per month, guarenteed for your life.
