17/04/2020 Coronavirus crisis and life certificates

People living abroad who encounter problems in completing their life certificate should not be afraid of losing their compensation.

To ensure that you continue to receive your compensation for occupational disease or occupational accident abroad, Fedris asks you each year to have a life certificate completed by the municipal administration, embassy or consulate of your place of residence. If Fedris does not receive this document on time, the payment of your compensation is suspended.

Given the exceptional circumstances we are currently experiencing, Fedris will not automatically suspend the payment of your compensation if you do not send your completed life certificate on time. This measure will remain in force as long as the coronavirus crisis lasts in Belgium and in your country of residence.

03/02/2020 Brexit: the rights of the insureds to be maintained until 31.12.2020

The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020 at midnight. A transition period is planned until 31 December 2020. During this period, nothing changes for those insured under social insurance.

Payment of benefits for accidents at work and occupational diseases will continue to be guaranteed after the end of the transition period. The question of reimbursement of medical expenses will have to be settled before 1 January 2021 at European or Belgian level.
