If you are giving up your job or taking unpaid leave, you are insured against non-occupational accidents for 31 days starting from your last working day. The same rule applies to persons who are no longer entitled to unemployment allowances.
Once this 31 days period has expired, you no longer enjoy accident coverage – this can be costly. So close this insurance gap with interim accident insurance and benefit from up to six additional months of insurance cover.
By taking out interim accident insurance, you extend your compulsory non-occupational accident insurance:
If you take out interim accident insurance with your previous insurer before your one-month additional coverage period expires, you can extend your insurance cover for non-occupational accidents by up to six months. Insurance benefits are provided in accordance with the provisions of the AIA. For accidents occurring after retirement (withdrawal from the labour market), there is no entitlement to daily benefits.
Yes, if you have been working at least eight hours per week in a company insured at Suva or are entitled to unemployment allowances. Please note: For seamless Suva interim accident insurance coverage, the most recent day on which you were entitled to at least half your salary must be no more than 30 days in the past.
If you are covered against non-occupational accidents, you are also insured with Suva during your holidays outside Switzerland.
Insurance benefits include, for example, medical treatment, rescue and recovery measures, and travel and transportation considered necessary on medical grounds.
