During the holidays, remember that you have 24-hour accident insurance cover

Whether you are an official or a member of the temporary or contract staff, you are covered 24 hours a day, wherever you are throughout the world, for any accident[2] occurring during or even outside working hours.

Your insurance therefore covers:

  • travel to and from work,
  • sports and other leisure activities, except participation in motorised competitions and high-risk sports,
  • accidents of any sort in your private or family life (gardening, odd jobs around the house etc.),
  • poisoning, bites of animals or of stings of insects.

Once an accident is recognised to have occurred, the victim is entitled not only to 100 % reimbursement of all medical expenses incurred, but also to monetary compensation where some degree of post-injury invalidity is recognised. For more information

[2] With a few exceptions, including manifestly reckless acts, excessive use of alcohol or drugs, deliberate handling of military weapons etc. See the complete list at:
