AHV fund reimbursment

Does anyone have experience to apply for reimbursment of AHV pension fund?
Is it only possible to apply it when I am completly back to home country or can I also apply it before I leave Swiss (e.g. two weeks ago.)?

The last two forms at this link relate to requesting to withdraw your AHV contributions (one is in English and the other in German, however I am not sure if they accept both). It states on the last page that you can submit the application prior to leaving:

The conditions for obtaining a refund of contributions
You must have contributed for at least one full year
Yourself and your family (spouse and children under 25) must have left Switzerland or intend to live outside Switzerland
definitively. If children of full age but under 25 remain in Switzerland, contributions may be still reimbursed if the children have
completed their professional education.
An application for a refund may be submitted before the planned departure or after departure up until the insured person reaches
retirement age or after his death. Entitlement to a refund is limited to five years from the case of insurance, however.

Documents to be attached to your demand:
OASI certificate(s)

Official confirmation of departure from Switzerland (copy if available)

Certificate of nationality or copies of valid passports for yourself and your family

In the case of refugees, a certificate of status is indispensable

Legalised current certificate of residence abroad or declaration of planned change of residence for yourself and your family

There is a lot of conflicting information on this forum about this topic. It would be great to have a definitive, correct, answer for all circumstances!

Thank you so much!
I may apply it before I leave.
