Swiss pension back after 9 months?
I've been digging through the forum a bit for this answer but mostly it's been discussed between people who have been working and living here far longer than I have, so I decided to ask directly with a new post.
I'm a Slovenian (EU) intern in Zurich and have been working here since October 2014. I'm leaving at the end of June 2015, which means I haven't worked a full year. I've been told by my collegues who worked in Switzerland before me that I could get back the pension part of my taxes when I leave.
I've asked my boss about this and he said that they haven't been paying out any pension for me except the obligatory state one, which I believe is the first pillar AHV tax - and in his words I cannot get this contribution back until I'm 3-times older than I am right now.
Beacause I know my boss can be a bit behind the times I've done some research on the subject myself and have found I would still be unable to withdraw anything under some other rules - I found that if I leave Switzerland for an EU country (I'm moving back home to Slovenia, and we are EU members) I cannot withdraw any pension money, and the same goes for anyone who has worked for less than a year (I fall into this category as well). But then again, someone said that the laws are poorly drafted and that for people who withdraw small amounts (= people who have worked for less than a year) usually get the contributions back.
On the other side, my friends from home who have interned in Switzerland before me have usually all gotten their pension money returned.
So now I have no idea what's going on. Help, anybody?
