In brief

Double protection: with Swiss Life Protection, you can combine disability insurance and term life insurance in a single contract – self-determinedly and based entirely on your needs.

With disability insurance, we pay you an annuity following the waiting period you select in the event you become disabled as a result of an accident or illness. You receive this annuity until the end of the contract or until you are able to work again. The amount of the payments depends on the level of disability and the insured benefit.

In the event of death, Swiss Life will pay out the insurance benefit to your beneficiaries. You determine whether the amount of the lump-sum death benefit remains the same or decreases. 

Your advantages at a glance

  • 100% benefit: you receive 100% of your contractual annuity benefits from Swiss Life if your degree of disability is 66⅔% or higher.
  • Immediately available: if you die, your beneficiaries will receive payment of the full lump-sum death benefit – irrespective of inheritance law.
