French term or phrase: rémunération brute AVS
Appears in an employment contract. I think this might be "gross pension contribution" but am not sure. Sample sentence below:
"Le résultat positif de ce compte sera réputé être égal au montant total de votre rémunération brute AVS pour l’année civile en question plus la part employeur des contributions AVS/AI/AC/AMAT/AF et LPP dues sur cette rémunération."
Thanks in advance for your help!

Apparemment il s'agirait de la Suisse ?

Cotisations AVS/AI/APG des salariés d'un employeur non tenu de cotiser valables dès le 1er janvier 2009
Le Conseil fédéral a décidé d'adapter le montant de la cotisation minimale et le barème dégressif des cotisations AVS/AI/APG appliqué aux salariés d'un employeur non tenu de cotiser.

AVS = assurance vieillesse et survivants

The Insurance for elderly people and survivors (assurance de vieillesse et de survivants, AVS in French) is governed by the Federal Law on Old-Age and Survivors’ Insurance of 20th December 1946 (LAVS) and it is the most important branch of the Swiss social security.

AVS, AI, APG and AC insurance (social security) consist of the old-age and widower's pension (AVS), disability insurance (AI), loss of earning capacity benefit (APG) And of the unemployment insurance (AC).
