Spouse* Health Insurance & Professional Income Declaration (SHIPID)

Role of the Spouse* Health Insurance & Professional Income Declaration (SHIPID)

Present and former Staff Members or Fellows, and Beneficiaries of the Pension Fund, who are Main Members of the CHIS and whose spouse* has:

  1. an income (including any subsistence allowance whether paid by the home institution, or through a Team Account, or by CERN) derived from a professional activity (i.e. income from employment or self-employment, or a retirement pension) in excess of 2500.- CHF; and
  2. no adequate primary health insurance other than the CHIS

may have to pay a supplementary contribution, which is a monthly lump-sum payable in addition to the monthly contribution. It is determined on the basis of the spouse’s gross monthly income (including any subsistence allowance whether paid by the home institution, or through a Team Account, or by CERN) according to the table below. The relevant regulatory provisions can be found in Section 2 of Chapter VII, Art. XII 1.06, and V 1.02 of the CHIS Rules.

The SHIPID (available in EDH for active personnel and from the Pension Fund for all others) is the way by which the Scheme gathers the information necessary to determine if a supplementary contribution is payable or not. A SHIPID has to be filled-in at the start or one's employment contract or of one's marriage or partnership agreement, and whenever the spouse's situation changes thereafter (in the case of gross monthly income, when it changes from one bracket to another - see table below).
