Disability insurance aims to compensate for the drop in or loss of earnings suffered by insured persons as a result of damage to physical, mental or psychological health.
The OAIE is responsible for all insured persons resident abroad, including both Swiss citizens and foreign nationals. Its tasks include:
- processing applications to determine the entitlement to benefits and to establish the level of invalidity
- calculating the amount, processing payment and managing the benefits of insured persons abroad
- implementing international social security agreements.
