Should you believe that the bills being claimed were incurred due to an accident or illness attributable to the performance of official duties on behalf of the Organization, please tick the relevant box on the claim form and attach the duly completed Declaration of Accident Form providing as much detail as possible.
We will forward your claim to the relevant office which will contact you concerning the specific procedures for filing a claim under the Appendix D to the Staff Rules.
We strongly advise all our members who are staff members to pursue service incurred claims as such if they believe the accident or illness was related to the performance of official duties. The reason is very simple; a claim recognized as service incurred is reimbursed at up to 100%, whilst non service incurred claims are reimbursed in accordance with the rules and regulations of UNSMIS, often 80% of expenses.
For more information on service incurred claims under the Appendix D to the Staff Rules, please visit the Compensation Claims website at: www.unog.ch/compensationclaims
Please note that during the review of whether a claim is Service Incurred or not, UNSMIS often advances reimbursement in accordance with its rules and regulations. Should the accident or illness be recognized as service incurred members will be reimbursed additionally for that part of the expenses not covered by UNSMIS. Should the accident or illness not be recognized as Service Incurred members will have already been reimbursed in advance by UNMSIS in accordance with the rules and regulations of UNSMIS. Either way as a Staff Member and an insured member of UNSMIS you are not penalized for pursuing a service incurred claim.
