Pension refund upon leaving Switzerland

I am due to leave Switzerland later this year and have been paying into a pension fund. Does anyone know how I can get this money back when I leave as Im not coming back.

Thanks

As far as I know as long as you were born in EU country, you will not get your money back but they will be used to pay you your pension later.

Re: Pension refund upon leaving Switzerland

what if youre not born in EU?

I have heard that if you continue to pay the AHV pension thing when u are overseas, at the base rate (say 300CHF/year) then when you retire (even if o/s) then you can tap into the standard pension you started when you lived here. Apparently its quite lucrative.... this is just what I heard.
