AVS number validity

Hi all,

I would like some information regarding the AVS number. If there is someone who can help me, that would be great.

I am an EU citizen and during 2018, I have been working as an intern for a period of six months in a company in the Canton of Vaud. After that period I returned to the authorities my L-permit, announced my departure and left from Switzerland.

Recently, I have signed a new contract with a company in the Canton of Zurich and I would like to know if I have to apply for a new AVS number or my old one is still valid.

Re: AVS number validity

Your old is still valid. It is for life.
("New" means it starts with 756 and has 13 digits. In use since mid 2008 )

If you know your AHV No. let your employer and health insurance know about it.
