Zur Invaliditätsversicherung in der Schweiz

  • Brigitte Wolff


The report deals with the coverage of the risk of disability by Swiss life insurance companies, the Swiss Social Insurance and by two important pension funds. It gives an idea of the various factors which have to be considered in disability insurance and which have an influence on the bases of calculation. It confirms the hypothesis that, with regard to the increase of the rates of disability with age, the ranking is a follows:
  1. (a)

    Individual insurance of life insurance companies;

  2. (b)

    Group insurance of life insurance companies;

  3. (c)

    Social insurance and pension funds.


The report also shows the differences within each of these groups which results from the definition of disability, the types of benefits, the kind of insured persons and the general economic conditions, and describes how the problems of disability insurance are solved by Swiss actuaries and which methods are used.
