Extend your accident insurance with interim accident insurance from AXA.

Interim accident insurance

Whether taking a break from your job or temporarily unemployed: With interim accident insurance from AXA you can extend your accident insurance under the Federal Act on Accident Insurance (UVG) by up to six months.

  • For just CHF 40 per month
  • Suspended during military or civil defense service
  • Automatic termination on commencement of employment

Insured against accidents as under an employment contract

During unpaid leave from a job or in case of termination you can take out interim accident insurance for a maximum of 6 months. This is only possible within the 31-day temporary extended coverage period following your former employment.

Extension of accident insurance (interim accident insurance)

If your employment relationship changes, due to termination without immediate re-employment, or because your working week drops below 8 hours, mandatory accident protection against non-occupational accidents ends. With interim accident insurance you can extend this by up to six months. This is recommended if you remain unemployed for longer than 31 days or are planning a longer period of unpaid leave.

  • Full benefits under the Federal Act on Accident Insurance (UVG)
  • Insurance coverage for a maximum of six consecutive months
  • Monthly premium payments are possible, but each payment must always be made before the existing monthly contract term expires.
  • The insurance is suspended automatically during military or civil defense service and resumes thereafter accordingly.


  • The interim accident insurance must be taken out before the temporary extended coverage period expires. In other words, on day 30 after your last working day at the latest.
  • Notify AXA immediately in the event of an accident.

Under the following circumstances, interim accident insurance is recommended:

  • Your employment is terminated or you have given notice yourself and have no new job for more than 31 days.
  • You temporarily reduce the length of your working week to less than eight hours and would like to benefit from full insurance coverage for non-occupational accidents.
  • You lose your job and don’t register with the unemployment insurance fund immediately.
