Federal Social Insurance Office

Key facts

In Switzerland, there is a standard procedure for social insurance funds to claim damages from the party liable in the event of disability or death. Old-age and survivors’ insurance (AHV) and disability insurance (IV) recourse claims against liable third parties are handled by eight regional recourse services, Suva and the Federal Social Insurance Office (FSIO), with the cooperation of the compensation funds and the IV offices.
