Accident coverage and daily sickness benefits
In order to be covered against the risk of disability or death as a result of an accident during unpaid leave, we strongly recommend taking out interim accident insurance. This can be taken out for a maximum of 6 months and must be applied for within 31 days of the start of your leave.
If the unpaid leave lasts longer than 7 months, we recommend checking accident coverage for medical costs with the health insurance company.
We would also like to point out that during unpaid leave the entitlement to daily sickness benefits also ceases. We recommend clarifying any possibilities for extending cover.
