And in this noble profession a few streaks of silver actually increase our daily rates.
What poor excuse for a lawyer pays by the day? Surely you bill every 6 minutes or part thereof?

Two AHV publications are helpful (in English): www.ahv-iv.ch/p/3.04.e www.ahv-iv.ch/p/2.01.e
Thanks for providing this info in English. I still don´t see any reference to being relieved from AHV contributions once you turn 69/70. Various sections refer to having to pay AHV contributions when having an income from work, but none of them refer to any age limitation.

But it would be difficult to justify taking contributions indefinitely that do not benefit the person - there must be a cut-off point.
AHV serves as a significant distribution of wealth form high salaries to folks with a lower income. There is no justification for this either, other than this being a political decision.

No, I can't find any reference to an age limit either - I was taking the word of my accountant and assumed he must be right. But it would make logical sense to have the same age limit as a deferred pension.

I don't think many Swiss work full time beyond their official retirement age and certainly very few over the age of 70, so it maybe it's an inconceivable scenario to the AHV.

To update to this, my accountant, after much dithering, has reversed his position and now says there's no age limit to AHV contributions. So it goes on ad infinitum for no benefit.

Re: Retiree offered job

Relevant to read paragraphs 2 and from 14 to 22

https://www.ahv-iv.ch/p/2.01.e (no mention of an upper age limit)

Other deductions are also made for employees working past retirement, (but not unemployment insurance),
