Non gainfully employed spouses of working persons who are insured abroad
Any non gainfully employed person residing in Switzerland, whose spouse is employed in a contracting state and is subject to the compulsory insurance there or remains insured in the country of origin as a posted worker in spite of being employed in Switzerland, is obliged to pay contributions in Switzerland as an non-working person. The cantonal compensation office at the place of residence is responsible for collecting the contributions.
Exceptions: Persons who remain insured in the country of origin due to the social security agreement.
