Freelancer in CH Paying into Italian INPS

As a US passport holder only, I am working as a freelancer in CH. One of my clients is in Italy. I am not eligible for an A1 as I do not carry an EU/EFTA passport, which means that I am obliged to pay into the Italian INPS system. When I am 65, can I make a claim in Italy to get this social security back even though I will never be a permanent resident in Italy? OR am I eligible to pull this out if my time of work in Italy is under 2 years?

Also, as a freelancer, I'm being told that I am required to have a "civil responsibility insurance". Could anyone recommend an insurance company in Switzerland? I'm looking for a policy that will cover "Civil Responsibility of DAMAGES caused by YOU versus PEOPLE or OBJECTS while you’re working FOR or IN in the office."

Thank you for any info or help on this!

What Swiss permit do you have?

You can use comparis.ch to see what companies offer personal liability.

Are actually self-employed or are you working through some kind of legal entity - your own company, an agency, a payroll company or similar. Because the answers are different depending on your legal situation. Because the public liability insurance they are asking for can be very expensive for a self employed person.

Note the link in the previous post refers to private liability, where as what they are asking for is public liability.

Thank you Jim for pointing this out.

I'm freelance as an Einzelfirma, and not working through an agency.
