Important information from the Swiss Compensation Office regarding life certificates

From 1st of May 2021 on, the Swiss Compensation Office in Geneva will again require an official life certificate confirmed by the authorities. If this is not possible due to the current situation in the respective country of residence of the insured persons (e.g. difficulties in visiting the competent authorities), the life certificates can be confirmed by the insured persons themselves by means of their own signature (without the stamp of the authorities). In this case, we ask the insured persons to enclose a copy of their valid passport or identity card and a witness confirmation with the certificate. The life certificates can be sent to the Swiss Compensation Fund in the form of a PDF by e-mail or in the original by normal post.

The witness confirmation can be worded as follows:

I, ............................ (name/first name of witness), confirm that Mr/Mrs .............................. (name/first name of insured person) is alive.

Full address of witness:..................................................................................................................

Date: .......................................

Signature: .................................

If the insured wishes to request an extension of the 90-day deadline for submitting the life certificate because it is imminent, they must notify us, as failure to receive the document will result in automatic deferral of payment.

Requests regarding the extension of the deadline and the life certificates can be sent to the following e-mail address: sedmaster@zas.admin.ch . In urgent cases, we can also be reached by telephone on +41 58 461 91 11.
