Anyone who loses their job or becomes unfit for work faces a sharp fall in income. At the same time, their regular monthly outgoings remain the same. The rent on their apartment, lease payments on their car, as well as subscriptions for public transportation, cell phones, fitness studios, and streaming services, need to be financed on a reduced budget – which can soon become a major headache.
Payment protection insurance covers you for these monthly outgoings. Payment protection insurance (PPI) from AXA will cover your regular outgoings for up to one year. Thanks to the monthly contributions from AXA, your accustomed standard of living is guaranteed in tough times too. This lets you to retain your financial flexibility and concentrate fully on your future.
Payment protection insurance comprises four modules that can be taken out individually or combined as required:

Manuela and her partner Mark live in an apartment which they rent at a cost of CHF 2,000 per month. As Mark is currently studying full-time, Manuela pays the entire rent. After a serious skiing accident, she is unable to work for a significant period and no longer receives her full salary.
Jonas pays CHF 750 per month in premiums for supplementary health insurance for his family of four. Due to a restructuring, the production plant where Jonas works is closed and he is made redundant.
