3 Month Extension

The three month extension is a bridging provision extended to insured Staff Members and their insured family members that allows them to extend the coverage for a maximum period of 3 months beyond the seperation date. During this period the insured member is responsible for paying their share of the premium and the share of the Organization in advance.

The three month extension cannot be counted towards the ten year period of eligibility for ASHI as during this period of extension the main insured is not a Staff Member.

The three month extension must be requested in advance in writing to unsmis@un.org. Please specify the duration of the extension (one, two or three months) and you will then be instructed on the premium to be paid in advance. The duration of the extension must be decided in advance and cannot be changed thereafter.
