News

Geneva, 19.03.2020 - Due to the health crisis we are currently going through, the Central Compensation Office CCO had to take measures, whilst ensuring its primary missions.

We confirm that payments of OASI/DI benefits will continue to be made without any interruption.

  • For any communication or question, please use our contact forms.
  • Our visitors’ offices has been closed to the public until further notice.
  • Our telephone lines are currently saturated, so please only call us in case of an emergency.
  • As the CCO is operating with drastically reduced staff, longer waiting times and delays in response (emails f.ex.) are most likely to occur.

We would like to thank you for your patience and assure you that we are doing our utmost to continue to offer you our services in a timely manner considering the difficult period we are currently enduring.
