Applicable to

CERN Staff and their family members

Benefit details

In the event of death of a:

  • member of the CERN personnel holding a staff contract; an indemnity of 3 times his or her basic salary, with a ceiling of 14’000 CHF, is payable to a member of the deceased person’s family (normally the spouse/partner) also insured by the CHIS.
  • family member to a member of the CERN personnel holding a staff contract; an indemnity of 1’600 CHF is payable to the Main Member.

How to claim?

Inform your CERN departmental secretary about the death within 30 calendar days. The secretary will register the change in family situation and initiate necessary administrative procedures.

Following the registration the CERN Social Service will initiate the claim on your behalf. Following receipt of the claim UNIQA may contact you to confirm the bank account to which the indemnity should be paid. You will receive a reimbursement statement when the claim has been paid.
