Ausgleichskasse contrubutions demand

My daughter has a Wochenaufenthaltsbewilligung, staying during the week in Bern. She just got home to find a demand for payment to the Ausgleichskasse in Bern relating to last year. It's too late to call now, but does anyone know why it might be that they would send this to her when her domicile is in Wallis? She was at school in Bern until last school year. She says that everyone over 20 has to make a pension payment even if they are still at school. That may be so, but why from Bern? She is panicking because when the earlier bill came she called and had been told it was an optional payment but now she sees that it clearly isn't. She did not question previously why it was from Bern.

Re: Ausgleichskasse contrubutions demand

Students are to begin making social contributions starting 1 January in the year after reaching 20. Contributions are to be made to the compensation fund at the location of the learning institution or directly to the learning institution.

"1 Muss ich Beiträge bezahlen, wenn ich studiere?
Ja. Schweizerische und ausländische Studierende mit zivilrechtlichem Wohnsitz in der Schweiz müssen ab 1. Januar nach Vollendung des 20. Altersjahres Beiträge an die AHV, IV und EO in der Höhe von 478 Franken jährlich (Mindestbeitrag) zahlen. Die Beiträge sind an die Ausgleichskasse am Sitz der Lehranstalt oder direkt an die Lehranstalt zu entrichten. "

More information is available at this brochure:
